Barack Obama is calling for an increase of women to lead in politics because he, like many of the rest of us, is over men.
During a speech at the African Leadership Academy in Johannesburg, South Africa, the former president told young African leaders that we need more women to lead social activism movements and head political groups.
“Every day I read the newspaper and just think, like, ‘Brothers, what’s wrong with you guys? What’s wrong with us? We’re violent, we’re bullying. Just not handling our business,'” Obama said. “I think empowering more women on the continent, that… is going to lead to some better policies.”
