In the news: Argentina's First Lady is elected as President

Next December, former lawyer Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner will make the transition from being Argentina's First Lady to being the country's first female President since Isabel Peron.

Aged 54, Ms. Fernandez defeated her opponent, Elisa Carrio, also a lawyer, by 10%.

Although there is quite a buzz in the media right now about female heads of state all over the world, it's always disappointing to notice that the media can't seem to be able to resist commenting about their appearance, style and behaviour instead of their personal background, beliefs and ideas.
