Many faces to women

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.

Among her stands:

  • Opposes access to abortion
  • Opposes access to morning afer pills
  • Opposes same sex marriage.
