“African women provide 70% of agricultural labour, and produce 90% of all food. Indeed, African women have the ability to enhance business performance and innovation. Despite this fact, they continue to be overrepresented in low-paid jobs and vulnerable jobs. To a large extent, the future of African growth is in the hands of women.” -Saara Kuugongelwa-Amadhila, first female Prime Minister of Namibia. On March 21st, 1990 Namibia gained its independence from South Africa.
