Phumzile Mlambo Ngcuka, UN Women Executive Director

In recent days, more than 1,000 people from around the world have converged on Paris for the Global Summit of Women, which has been looking at ways of harnessing female economic power.

We meet one of the summit's keynote speakers, Phumzile Mlambo Ngcuka, who is the head of UN Women.
