Sierra Leone - women as heroes without voice

In Sierra Leone, the critical role of women in fighting the outbreak of Ebola is contrasted with their poor representation in parliament:

Women in the country have less of a voice than their male counterparts, there are only 13 - out of 124 - female members of parliament, and women's literacy stands at just 32 per cent, compared to 54 per cent in men. With this in mind, the unsung female heroes of the Ebola response - who worked quietly and efficiently to fight the disease - deserve particular attention.
