Sexism against President Rousseff

Brazil’s President DilmaRousseff was impeached in 2016 by the lower house for breaking budget rules with only 45 women out of 513 deputies who said sarcastically “Goodbye dear.” She commented, “There has been, mixed in all of this, a large amount of prejudice against women.”
