        Iron Ladies of Liberia | Film Module

        This module examines the first year in the term of President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, the first female head of state in the civil war-damaged African nation of Liberia. Short clips examine her personal philosophy, public persona, and methods of leadership as she deals with a devastated infrastructure, irate former soldiers, the Firestone Corporation, and the governments of China and the United States.
