Mexico City has elected a Jewish lady as their new mayor. Not only is she the first woman to be elected to that office (another was previously appointed in 1999), but she is also the first Jewish mayor. Talk about a historic double victory!
The city, which has a Jewish population of 50,000, overwhelmingly supported Claudia Sheinbaum Pardo. A scientist by profession, she previously served as Environmental Secretary. She has promised to battle the rampant crime and government corruption that have plagued Mexico for decades.
It’s amazing how Jewish ladies continue to break barriers that benefit the lives and career opportunities for all women.
