On a first read-thru, my impression was Feminists as a rule supported the new regime without hesitation, presumably because the Dictator was a woman. Unless "Feminism" means something really radically different than I think it does, this seems very unlikely. For example, one would think Feminists would have supported Margaret Thatcher, the first woman prime minister of the UK. But they did not. I'm puzzled by this. Zahir 09:24, 13 January 2008 (PST)

I seem to recall that feminism in IB has taken a different form. I don't know what exactly. Benkarnell 10:32, 13 January 2008 (PST)
The way I seen it is that Esperanza Rios is popular among the feminists because she succeeded in male-dominated sectors of a quite patriarchal society (she was a soldier, then a politician). Perhaps her government introduced some measures for increasing equality of genders as well. However I don't know that much about feminist ideology really so feel free to correct me if I am wrong.
