In an era of #MeToo, women are proving to be resilient than ever. They are now challenging long standing partriarchy that has defined the current world as we know it. From Kamala Harris being declared the first woman to hold the position of vice president of the United States all the way to the girl child in the continent of Africa getting to know her value, WOMEN are 'taking up space'. On the first episode Saray Khumalo connects with Ms. Metsi Makhetha, a woman who has led by example and taking up space in her chosen field. Metsi has over 25 years of experience working with multilateral institutions and leading multidisciplinary teams, supporting political transitions, facilitating development Programs, and delivering humanitarian Services. In 2016, she was appointed the United Nations Representative in Burkina Faso. In this capacity, she is the official Representative of the United Nations Secretary General and is responsible for ensuring coordination and coherence of UN operations.
