Second generation immigrant with a Jewish background, Claudia Sheinbaum, aka ‘La Doctora’ takes office as the first woman president in Mexico.

In 1953, Mexican women were given the right to vote in presidential elections. Seventy-one years later, the citizens of the southern-most nation in North America call for a change in the representation of leadership. President Sheinbaum is from immigrant parents who moved to Mexico after WWII. A former University of California Berkeley professor and an engineer in the field of energy, she works to transform a country that stands to command more global power through its aggressive trade development. However, President Sheinbaum has some critical areas of the state to address. We talk about them with Dr. Sherice Janaye.
