Liberia: Angie Brooks - One of four female presidents of the UN General Assembly



In the history of the United Nations (UN), the 193-member General Assembly has only ever had a female president four times, but how did these women become the president of the UN's top decision making body?
María Fernanda Espinosa Garcés, the 73th president of the General Assembly, Bahrain's Sheikha Haya Rashed Al Khalifa, the third woman to preside at the UN General Assembly, Vijaya Lakshmi Panditm was an Indian diplomat and politician who served as president of General Assembly from 1953 to 1954, and Angie Brooks, the only African female president of the United Nations General Assembly, was a Liberian diplomat. She held many degrees in political science, art and law. She was also the first female lawyer in Liberia and the first woman to be appointed as a justice in Liberia's Supreme Court.
