"In 2006, Liberia elected its first female president, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf-Hailed (Stewart para. 1). This was considered a monumental advancement for a society that was dominated by males and patriarchal beliefs for centuries. The prevailing notion following the president's election was that she would instantly alter inadequacies in gender equality and allow females to finally take a more active role in their government (Stewart para. 1). The United Nations Population Fund suggests that gender equality is a right of all females, regardless of their cultural associations or national citizenship ("Promoting" para.1)."
