What makes Dilma Rousseff extraordinary? Read this book to find out. We explore her early years, including her developing interest in events and problems in her country. We look at the road to her significant political accomplishments, peaking with her role as the first female president of Brazil. Read about others' perspectives on her life, how her life has been different to women in the past (including her own family), and how she has broken political and social boundaries.
