"The election on Sunday of Michelle Bachelet as Chile`s President completes a three continent long jump for women in politics.Ms. Bachelet is the first woman elected president in Latinoamerica,who is not the widow of a political strongman.
On Monday,when Ellen Johnson Sirleaf was inagurated as president of Liberia,she became Africa`s first woman to be elected President.And Angela Merkel`s election as chancellor of Germany,a woman leads Westen Europe`s most populous nation.
Ms Bachelet,a socialist,an agnostic and a single mother won the presidency of Chile.Latin America most conservative country,with the help of a compelling personal history.She is the daugther of an air force general who died in prison during Gen.Pinochet`s rule after months of torture,and she herself was imprisoned and tortured.When she was named defense minister in the curent government,she was put in charge of a military still very shaped by Mr.Pinochet.She brought an unpretentious style to the post,and won a reputation for toughness without rencor."
