Description

On the Shoulders of Giants: Thomas Sankara Thomas Sankara made women's rights one of his priorities; he banned female genital mutilation, forced marriages, and polygamy. He would also appoint women to positions within his government and encouraged them to work outside the home. He would also encourage pregnant women to stay in school. Sankara's idea was to promote overall equality for men and women within his country. The Sankara led government would be the first African Government to recognize AIDS as a major epidemic to Africa. Sankara became popular with the people of Burkina Faso by making equality between the people and the government a priority. Sankara was named the "African Che Guevara" because he emulated his personal style and politics. www.Liveskilled.com mail@Liveskilled.com FB: Live Skilled Live Fulfilled Twitter: @Liveskilled Google+: Live Skilled
