At di moment, di number of women wey don enter power all over di world don reach like double for di past years.

As all dis women leaders dey progress dey go, dem dey carry other women follow body?

One 2012 study of thousands of Indian adolescents and their parents find out say if village get female leader, e dey give strong hope to young women for di village.

Na normal thing say parents for India dey always get higher hope for their son pass di daughters.

But once any village get female leader for two election back-to-back, parents dey appreciate dia daughters more.

E hard to make any strong connection on whether women leaders dey improve quality of life of their fellow women.
