he first ever female speaker to open theGeneral Debate, Dilma Rousseff, thePresident of Brazil, called on the worldleaders to find a solution to theeconomic crisis and declared Brazil's commitmentto the international negotiations on climate change.For the first time in the history of the United Nations,a female voice opens the General Debate. It is thevoice of democracy and equality reverberating fromthis, which has the commitment of being the mostrepresentative podium in the world. It is withpersonal humility, but with my justified pride as awoman, that I meet this historic moment. I share this feeling with over half of the humanbeings on this planet who, like myself, were bornwomen and who, with tenacity, are occupying theplace they deserve in the world. I am certain thatthis will be the century of women. In Portuguese, words such as life, soul and hope arefeminine nouns. Two other words that are veryspecial to me are also feminine: courage andsincerity. And it is with courage and sincerity that Iwish to speak to you today. The world is going through an extremely delicatemoment, which is also a great historic opportunity. We face an economic crisis that, unless it isovercome, could become a grave political and socialrift. Such a rift would be unprecedented, capable ofcausing serious imbalances in the relationship amongpeople and among nations. More than ever, the fate ofthe world is in the hands of its leaders -all of them,without exception. We can either unite and togetheremerge victorious; or we can emerge defeated.
