There is trouble in paradise for Brazil’s president Dilma Rousseff. Since the beginning of Rousseff’s presidency, many have called her and the Brazilian government corrupt. Many also blame Brazil’s economic problems on President’s Rousseff’s administration. Many have cried for her resignation or outright impeachment. They may now be getting their wish as impeachment charges have been brought against President Rousseff by Brazil’s lower house of Congress. Impeachments proceedings may take several months but the public may be finally getting what they have been waiting for. However, many experts say that President Rousseff will probably resign before the storm gets too rough. Rousseff is Brazil’s first female president and is one of 18 female heads of state worldwide. She has been very vocal about her being a woman in her position and frequents Time magazine’s “Most Powerful Women in The World” list.
