Dos Mujeres

Dos mujeres de dos diferentes generaciones han tenido por estos dias el regocijo de ser reconocidas por su trayectoria; ellas son la escritora canadiense Alice Munro depositaria del Premio Nobel de Literatura 2013 merecido por sus cuentos y la otra es la adolesente pakistaní Malala Yousafzai a quien le fue otorgado el premio Sakharov por la libertad de pensamiento  por su defensa al derecho de la mujer a estudiar en condiciones hostiles como lo en algunas regiones de su país.
Munro quien escribe desde la adolesciencia y comenzó a publlicar en 1968 nació en 1931; Malala, por su parte, tiene menos de veinte años y tan temprano en su vida fue víctima de agresión física por sus deseos de superarse; estuvo grave y su experiencia y actitud es una denuncia viva a la alineación de la mujer en paises adonde se ha llegado a estos extremos.
Como dato curioso ambas mujeres nacieron a mediados de julio, Munro el dia diez, Malala el 12; felicidades a estas dos grandes!

Se va Otunbayeva, entra Dhzioeva.

En la segunda vuelta de las elecciones presidenciales en South Ossetia ha salido victoriosa la ex-mimistro de Educación y candidata de la oposición Alla Dhzioeva; aunque estas elecciones, según el gobierno georgiano no tendrá ningún impacto pues la autonomía de tal región al norte del país no le es reconocida no deja de ser interés para este blog reflejar este acontecimiento el cual colocará a otra mujer al frente de una nación. La independencia surosetiana sólo es econocida por unos pocos paise snetre ellos Rusia de donde es la mayor parte de su población; de hecho South Ossetoa está ocupada militarmente por los rusos y allí circula el rublo libremente.
Se me hace curioso que en este último mes del año Roza Otunbayeva, presidenta de Kirgystán cese en su cargo y en un lugar no muy lejos Dzhiaeva se haga con la presidencia dejando margen para un cierto juego fonético.

Re elegidas y relevadas.

Hoy ha sido re-elegida para presidenta en segunda vuelta la única mujer ocupando este cargo en Africa, Ellen Sirleaf; hace unos dias rondando el crítico primer aniversario de la muerte de su esposo y antecesor Cristina Fernandez lograba una clara victoria como presidenta de Argentina por segunda vez.
Esto no ha sucedido con Roza Otunbayeva y Patrice McAleese quienes dejarán sus cargos en breve cuando sean investidos como presidentes Michael Higgins y Almazbek Atambayev elegidos en Kyrgistán e Irlanda respectivamente. Otunbayeba sólo ejerció algo más de un año desde el cambio abrupto de poder sucedido en ese pequeño país asiático y lo hará hasta el último día de 2011. McAleese cesará en sus funciones el día de su cumpleaños el cual este año se adorna con la secuencia de onces pues es el once de noviembre (mes once) de 2011.
Con estos resultados tenemos dos mujeres menos en las altas esferas de la política y por lo tanto el porciento con respecto al total de diganarios puede que haya caido a seis.
