(Togo First) - Togo’s Prime Minister, Victoire Tomégah-Dogbé, is among Africa’s top 100 most influential women. She’s is featured in Avance Media’s annual ranking of influential women in Africa and its diaspora. 

“We believe this project provides us with another opportunity to not only celebrate African women but to showcase the individual and collective achievements of women who are inspiring the next generation of leaders in Africa,” Avance Media wrote on its website. 

The women featured in the top 100 are regrouped into eight categories: economic leadership, civil society organizations and philanthropy, diplomacy, education and literature, entertainment, media, and public service and governance. Tomegah-Dogbe is in the latter with 15 other women including the Presidents of Tanzania and Ethiopia, Samia Suluhu Hassan and Sahle-Work Zewde, Benin’s Vice president Mariam Chabi Talata, and Rwanda’s First Lady Jeannette Kagamé.  

Overall, women from 30 different countries were ranked. Those from West Africa include the Ivorian digital marketing expert Edith Brou, Nigerian author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, her compatriot Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala who heads the World Trade Organization, and Liberia’s former leader Ellen Johnson Sirleaf.

Regarding the Togolese PM, it’s important to recall that last July 4th she received the German Senate’s Sustainable Development Award.
