The World's 100 Most Powerful Women: DILMA 3ª


Dilma Rousseff made news when she was elected to lead Latin America's largest economy in October, but in many ways the election result was not a surprise. As the first female Chief of Staff under reformist President Lula da Silva, appointed in 2005, she was widely expected to be his successor. It is her rise to that post that is remarkable. Involved in Latin America's radical labor politics, Rousseff was jailed for two years. In 2001, when she was appointed Minister of Energy, Rousseff began to alter her views towards a more a pragmatic and capitalist approach. Today she is battling a rebellious National Congress threatening to halt her agenda and Brazil's economic boom. Outside politics, Rousseff is an avid theater fan, particularly classical Greek drama and opera.
