Spotlight on: Laura Chinchilla
Chinchilla is the newly elected first female President of Costa Rica who won the Presidency last Sunday and will take office May 8. She joins the ranks of other Latin American female Presidents including Chile's Michelle Bachelet and Argentina's Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner. While Chinchilla is known for her social conservative and pro-business platform, I am most excited about her take on women's issues in Latin America.

Congratulations to Chinchilla on your victory for the real pro-woman movement.
