Women in Brazilian Politics

I have made a decision to keep Brazil's electoral politics out of this blog for a variety of reasons.  Tempers flare when I stand up for the political values and strategies I embrace in the face of the widespread cynicism and hoplessness Brazilians feel toward their elected officials.  My optomism is quickly dismissed as naivaté.  It's not worth the stress.

But I did come across this piece recently that I think speaks to some of the changes afoot in Brazil.  It was originally posted at globalpost a terrific international news website.  Check it out.
