Another Presidenta?

February 6, 2012

In absence of quotas, women are still conquering South American politics. Argentina, Costa Rica and Brazil already have a women serving as presidents. Now, regional superpower and one of the world’s largest economies, Mexico seems to follow their footsteps.

Last night, Josefina Vázquez Mota was elected as the representative of the ruling conservative National Action Party in the forthcoming presidential elections. “I am going to be the first woman president in history’’ said Ms Vázquez Mota. In her emotional speech, she refereed herself as the “presidenta”, using the feminine form of the word in Spanish. As in other Latin American countries large numbers of women are expected to be seen at the polls on July 1.
