Rwanda. Women in Charge

Twenty-four years since being devastated by genocide, Rwanda has become a role model for women’s rights in Africa, with female members of society now pursuing careers and taking on leadership roles. However, many poorer and less educated women have been unable to take advantage of their new rights and find their realities little changed. RTD spoke to both women in power and those in menial jobs to find out if gender equality has truly been achieved in Rwanda or whether it’s still a work in progress.

Watch "Rwanda. Women in Charge" on RTD website and on RT’s live feed. The time of the broadcast is available on RT’s schedule page.
