Women in Mexican Politics
Women in Mexican Politics

Listen
AIR DATE: June 20, 2012

Agua Prieta is a small Mexican border town south of Douglas, Arizona.  For the first time in its history, two women are competing for mayor.  Josefina Vasquez Mota is also the first woman from a major political party running for Mexico's president.  So what role are women now playing on Mexico's political stage?  Are they simply following in the rest of Latin America's footsteps, or is this the sign of something bigger?  We hear a Fronteras report, plus check in with an expert.
