A Woman of Firsts reveals the astonishing life of the indomitable Edna Adan Ismail. Surviving imprisonment, persecution, and civil war, she was Somaliland’s first midwife, campaigning tirelessly for better healthcare for women, and fought for equality on a global stage as the first female Foreign Minister of her country.
