What Does South America Have That the US Doesn't? Women Presidents!


Verónica Michelle Bachelet Jeria served as President of Chile from March 11, 2006-March 11, 2010. She became the first woman president in Chile's history. President Bachelet won the 2006 election in a runoff, beating her opponent with 53.5% of the vote. Cristina Elisabet Fernández de Kirchner (also known as Cristina Fernández or Cristina Kirchner) currently serves as the President of Argentina. The daughter of a bus driver and a homemaker won the office of President with 45.3% of the vote. She held a 22% lead over her nearest rival! Dilma Rousseff was elected President of Brazil on Oct. 31st. She won the election with 55% of the vote in a country where an estimated 135 turned out to cast their ballots.
