“With a woman’s ambition to lead comes the risk of being undermined, maligned, sidelined, or even physically attacked simply because women are still viewed as ‘the weaker sex’ … being a relatively young female leader in a patriarchal society is fraught with challenges; the first of which is actually getting into office.”

This captivating book is a testament of the power that lies within every woman. Linda urges every reader to embrace their own dreams, overcome obstacles, and create a brighter future for themselves and their communities.

She tells the story of her journey from her upbringing as a child to a chance encounter with a classmate who made her realise that just putting oneself forward is half the battle in becoming a leader. Linda’s story is intertwined with political events in Zambia from 2011 to 2021, which saw the country on the path towards democratic decline, and the role she and other activists played trying to restore Zambia’s democracy.

Her story touches on difficult topics such as losing a child, mental health, and the sexism faced by women in leadership. It ends with a list of lessons that she has learnt over the years and a call to arms for more women to take up the call to leadership.
