UN Women congratulates Michelle Bachelet, our founding Executive Director and new President-elect of Chile. UN Women has made it a core priority to advance women's full and equal participation in decision-making. With a second term as President, we at UN Women could not be happier to see Ms. Bachelet as the 17th woman Head of State or Government worldwide.
