How to Involve More Women in Politics: Michelle Bachelet, Epsy Campbell Barr, María Eugenia Vidal
The UN high commissioner for human rights, the Costa Rican VP, and the ex-governor of Buenos Aires province shared their personal and professional perspectives.
Latin America has made significant progress in growing women’s participation in politics. Women now hold a third of seats in the region’s national legislatures and about half in Mexico, Bolivia, and Costa Rica. With the pandemic threatening to derail progress, we speak with former President of Chile Michelle Bachelet, Vice President of Costa Rica Epsy Campbell Barr, and former Governor of Buenos Aires Province María Eugenia Vidal about how to attract new leadership in years to come.
