Definitely, 2011 will be THE year for female politicians in Latin America.

Brazil will welcome its first female president in 2011, Dilma Rousseff.

Cristina Fernandez has recuperated much of her popularity in Argentina, since her husband Nestor Kirchner, passed away.

Laura Chinchilla will enter her second year as president of Costa Rica.

Dilma Rousseff, Brazil’s first female president, was the former chief of staff for her popular predecessor, Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva.
