Women ambassadors who serve on the United Nations Security Council have the responsibility to open the door for other women to follow in their steps.

That's according to Maria Cristina Perceval, the Permanent Representative of Argentina, who is one of five female ambassadors serving on the Council.

It's the first time there have been five women on the 15-member body.

In the second of our series of five interviews with women ambassadors, Elizabeth Philip asked Ms Perceval about the significance of serving on the Security Council.
