West Africa's only female forensic scientist

Women in the 21st century have more rights and opportunities than ever before.  But more than a century after they began winning the vote, most societies are still denominated by men.  Women’s wages are lower.  They make up just 20% of the world’s governments.  And millions of teenage girls never get a chance to finish school.  But there ARE women out there breaking down those barriers.  In Ivory Coast, the BBC’s Tamasin Ford went to meet one woman doing just that.  As the head of the Forensic Science Institute, Professor Helena Yapo Etté is the only female forensic scientist in the whole of West Africa.
