Rwandan Women Rising 15

In 1994, Rwanda witnessed a genocide that left more than a million people dead. And in the aftermath, the country entrusted the job of rebuilding to women – in fact, more than 60 percent of its elected leaders in Parliament are women. Swanee Hunt joins us to talk about the lessons we can learn from these women, which she writes about in “Rwandan Women Rising” (Duke University Press).
