These women were ranked based on their overall contributions to the country. Women indeed have emerged from the primitive, kitchen dwelling position they do take on from time immemorial in this part of the world and have become leaders of different spheres they find themselves.
Some women have even distinguished their selves globally, the likes of Omobola Johnson, Ngozi Okonjo Iweala, Oby Ezekweseli, Fola Alakija, all from Nigeria and a host of others.
We join the International community to celebrate with across the continent, most especially these Ghanaian women who have distinguished themselves from the multitude.
