Ellen Johnson Sirleaf - President of Liberia
Ellen Johnson Sirleaf is the first female African president. She is Harvard trained and won a hotly contested election against soccer star, George Weah. I don't follow Liberian politics and can't say how successful/effective she has been in leading the war-torn nation, but she is undoubtedly a role model to Africans and women everywhere.
