Pres. Michelle Bachelet, an outstanding global leader is known to us as the first Undersecretary of the UN heading the UN Women which is in charge in promoting gender equality and women’s empowerment. She is also the first woman President of Chile who has been elected twice (2006 and 2013). Her life exemplifies and epitomizes the best traits of women – leadership, resilience and the persistence to achieve the best for women and her country having overcome tremendous challenges in her life.
