Women fight it out to be Chile’s president
Jess McCabe // 29 April 2005
Two Chilian politicians are fighting it out for a chance to become the country’s first ever female president.
Michelle Bachelet and Soledad Alvear are only competing to be the presidential candidate for Chile’s centre-left coalition, but it is widely predicted that whichever woman comes out on top will win the presidency. The conservative opposition candidate is a man, and the party has lost the last three elections.
