When Chinchilla was elected president of Costa Rica, it was celebrated. It is good for the sake of seeing women gain high office (though it is not as if she is the first woman in Central or South America to win high office).
But as Feministing notes, she is not bringing support for key women's and other social issues with her.
A curmudgeon and soft-heart. A pessimist and optimist. A loner and joiner. Even I get sick of me.
A Neophyte Negotiator of all the Nonsense. An Ornate Opponent of…Oh, you know. A Lover of Levity and the Lectern. An Irreconcilably Irate Idyllist. The Eternal Enemy of Erratum. Just a Solitary Serrated Soul. I'm sorry, what was the question?
