Ellen Johnson Sirleaf: Documentary film of her first year

Women's Hour for March 17th reports on a new documentary by Siatta Scott Johnson, Iron Ladies of Liberia, about Ellen Johnson Sirleaf's first year in office.

In a clip, President Sirleaf talks to Firestone Tire Company about the dreadful living conditions of employees (houses without windows and no schooling for children). Apparently, she followed up this public criticism to see new houses being built for Firestone employees and children being sent to schools.

Here's a link to the movie itself.
