Dilma Rouseff is important because she was the first female president in Brazil. Dilma served as a secretary for a time but left that job to serve on the presidential campaign of Lula. Lula named Dilma the minister of mines and energy. Dilma was later appointed to Chief of Staff under Lula. Dilma was elected in to presidency in 2011. She focused on economic stability, poverty eradication, political reform, tax reform, and job creation. Her foreign policy included human rights, multilateralism, peace, and nonintervention. In Dilma's first year in office, the gross domestic product growth rate had dropped 6.5 percent. During her second term, Brazil's economy was quickly worsening. The people were mad that money was being taken and given back to the Petrobras Officials. They were mad that Dilma had not caught this action and stopped it. The people were so mad that they called for impeachment. She was later impeached for misuse of state bank funds in 2016. Dilma pleaded that she was only doing what other politicians had already done, but in the end, the Senate won out.
