Chile’s 1st Female President

Well Chile had the second round of their presidential election today and of the top two candidates one was a woman, Michelle Bachelet. She was in the lead after the first round and I just read a few minutes ago that she is Chile's first female president. I'm so happy for her. But man when will the US wake up and do something about women in politics on a national government level. So many countries are making us look so bad when it comes to this matter. Even the DR has had a female VP and Bachelet was Secretary of Defense before being elected. We are like 60ish in the world when it comes to females in parliament. Okay, yes, we have had two Secretaries of State, one of them being Black, but we still have some work to do.
