UN Women’s Michelle Bachelet on Progressive Change

Yesterday, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon announced the appointment of former Chilean President Michelle Bachelet as head of UN Women, a newly created entity to oversee all of the world body’s programs aimed at promoting women’s rights and full participation in global affairs.

Hear what she had to say in this program presented by UC Berkeley’s Center for Latin American Studies.
