"With Dilma's election, we saw the voters trust women," Ms. D'Avila said. "With Dilma's decision to bring so many women into her government, she's showing again that women have a high capacity for governance."
"If a woman is young and in power, it's because she's pretty; if it's a man, it's because he's brilliant. If a woman is forceful, she's very amusing; if it's a man, he's strong and has conviction," she said. "Dilma is helping a lot, but the path is still very long."
