“Feminist leadership is when people (…) who advocate for women’s rights and gender equality come together, and are in the forefront of decision-making, when these people are in position where they have to direct, where they have to control, where they initiate ideas and influence people’s ideologies (…) where they supervise or manage a group of people or an organization. That is feminist leadership”.Ijeoma Egwuatu, June 2019
