Across the world, female heads of governments are a rare sight. This is because, as can be easily argued, women are thought to be in some terms, inferior to men.
But if Africa of all places has had women leading governments, albeit in only two countries, one can say the trends are being challenged. Ghana may then not be far from seeing a woman be president.
YEN.com.gh compiles a list of women who have the brightest of chances to be president in the near future:
1. Dr Zanetor Rawlings
Dr Zanetor Rawlings is the daughter of former President Jerry Rawlings. She is the lawmaking representative of Korle-Klottey constituency.
Dr Rawlings is currently keeping a cool head in Parliament and partisan discussions. This actually means that no one would see her coming when she makes her way to the top.
2. Samira Bawumia
Unfortunately for women in politics, they are judged by their looks. Samira Bawumia would have no problem when it comes to that.
She is also loved across the country even if her husband is currently unpopular, and the experience she has gained in campaigns should help.
3. Hannah Tetteh
Talk of an older, experienced and energetic Ghanaian female politician and Hanna Tetteh will show up.
The former minister and MP is now working for the UN and it is the kind of experience that she needs in addition to her marvelous popularity.
4. Ursula Owusu
Ursula Owusu is perhaps the most partisan name on this list. But it may be the reason why she could go far in her New Patriotic Party (NPP) rankings.
The Member of Parliament (MP) is as strong as she is effective and that would surely garner a good amount of support.

5. Yvonne Nelson
Yvonne Nelson is the outsider in this list. The actress is also the youngest too.
But she has already shown in the past, celebrity influence is not much different from political popularity. Her numbers would speak for her.
