    I think Already It´s time that we shall to see everybody (Women and Men) like humans with equals capabilities, possibilities and skills. The person who performs any public office should not be chosen for the sex or gender to which he belongs, but for the formation, the commitment and the experience in the field of the defense of the rights; this will ensure that the person will exercise his position in the most efficient way possible. But, even better if the person chosen has much experience in the struggle for the rights of the most needy, or the most vulnerable groups.
