Today we are celebrating the election of Brazil’s first woman president: Dilma Rousseff.
LA Times: Brazil elects first female president
This is particularly exciting, as Brazil has been emerging as a super power over the last few years. Rousseff won because she was strongly endorsed by the popular outgoing president, whom she served as chief of staff and energy minister. She was an integral part of his team, and over the last eight years, the country has seen its greatest economic growth, became self-sufficient for oil, and now has the lowest unemployment rate on record. Of course, with rapid growth, Rousseff faces tough battles to provide infrastructure and prevent inflation. The world will be watching, and we’re excited to see where Brazil and Rousseff will be when they host the World Cup in 2014 and the Olympics in 2016.
