Peace and the growing power of women in Latin America provide the twin themes this week on Latin Pulse. The presidential elections in Chile which have two women vying for the presidency provide the backdrop for a discussion of how women have moved into the key positions of power in the region. The program also gives an update on progress in the peace talks meant to settle the civil war in Colombia, a war that has gone on for almost 50 years. The news segment of the program covers the police strike and resulting violence in Argentina.
The program includes interviews with:
Macarena Saez of American University; and
Gimena Sanchez of the Washington Office on Latin America (WOLA).
Executive Producer: Rick Rockwell; and
Associate Producer: Megan Ekhaml.
