Podcast: Changing the Face of Politics — listening to women leaders

Changing the Face of Politics podcast teaser #2.

In this second podcast teaser, Devex reflects on some of the highlights from recent episodes of the National Democratic Institute's “Changing the Face of Politics” podcast series.

In episode 7, Fauziya Abdi Ali, founder and president of Women in International Security, Horn of Africa, talks about redefining traditional concepts of peace and security.

Next, Abdi Ali interviews Věra Jourová in episode 8, who discusses women’s political leadership in Europe given her role as vice president of the European Commission for Values and Transparency.

And in the final excerpt, Devex listens to Roya Rahmani, Afghan ambassador to the United States, give insights about why she thinks some women prefer to avoid the spotlight that comes with being a leader.
