    Veteran human rights activist Aminata Touré was named Prime Minister of Senegal on Sunday after the ouster of her predecessor, Abdoul Mbaye.
    The appointment makes Touré, who formally served as the nation’s justice minister, the second female Prime Minister in Senegal’s history.

    After taking office, Touré wasted no time naming her cabinet, which includes four other women. Although she’s been on the job for less than a week, Touré has already received both praise and criticism for tapping Sidiki Kaba as her replacement as justice minister because of his support of decriminalizing homosexuality in Senegal.

    Touré, 51, has been an activist her entire life, working for the Communist Worker’s League while attending university; advocating for humans rights as head of the United Nations Population Fund’s gender and human right’s branch; pushing her government to do more to empower women; and fighting corruption in Senegal through her position as justice minister.

    Dubbed Senegal’s “Iron Lady,” Touré holds a Masters in Economics and a PhD in International Financial Management

    I'm thinking that was a typo and that should be "decriminalizing homosexuality," not "decimalizing homosexuality."

    I'm laughing at her "attire." I have an outfit similar to hers. It's beautiful, like hers. Unfortunately, when I wrapped the galai around my head... like her, I looked like a big brownie! :lol:

    I don't have any luck with the galai. I wish someone would do a how to video. I think they're so elegant.
