The Security Council has been described as an "international sisterhood" by one of the five women ambassadors currently serving on the United Nations body.

For the first time in the history of the Council, women occupy five of the 15 seats.

Ambassador Joy Ugwu of Nigeria is one of them. She hopes that one day women will make up the majority.

In the latest of our interviews with the women ambassadors Elisabeth Philip began by asking Ms Ogwu what it is like to serve on the Council.
