非洲政治的女性化

巴马科/多伦多——上个月,埃塞俄比亚总理阿比·艾哈迈德任命了新一届内阁;由女性担任20个职位中的十个。短短一周后,该国议会一致推选祖德成为埃塞俄比亚的首位女总统,而一周后,立法机构又任命阿什纳菲担任该国首位女性最高法院院长

埃塞俄比亚并不是唯一的。卢旺达总统保罗·卡加梅上个月任命了一届性别平衡的新内阁 。卢旺达已经有着全世界国民议会中最高的女性比例;而现在,这个国家将会涌现出更多的女性领导者。

尽管埃塞俄比亚和卢旺达均处在非洲推动政治性别平等运动的第一线,但其他非洲国家也不甘落后。在由女性担任立法席位比例的问题上,非洲以南撒哈拉地区在全世界20个排名靠前的国家中占据了六个。而在全球排名垫底的两个非洲国家——尼日利亚和马里——政界人士正在积极探讨增加女性代表的方法

    Boris’s Big Lie

    Guy Verhofstadt

    While Boris Johnson, the likely successor to British Prime Minister Theresa May, takes his country down a path of diminished trade, the European Union is negotiating one of the largest free-trade agreements in the world. One really has to wonder what the "buccaneering" Brexiteers have to complain about.
