Michelle Bachelet


Last quote by Michelle Bachelet

What has prevailed is tolerance, and that every woman may make decisions based on her values, religion, principles or real options. Today I am proud to say we have fulfilled a fundamental commitment of our government with the women in our country. It has been a long battle, fought with the weapons of democracy and dialogue, overcoming barriers and prejudice that in the past impeded hundreds of women from alleviating their suffering.feedback

Oh completely! First of all, political participation by women is the biggest gap in all the goals on women's rights. It is not only 'We need to have women!'

If you bring women and men together, bring people from different regions of the world together, you get a better outcome.feedback
