Jamaica to Have First Woman Leader

"Portia Simpson-Miller, a cabinet minister, is set to become Jamaica's first female prime minister after being elected president of the ruling People's National Party. She will be appointed prime minister when PJ Patterson, who is midway through his third five-year term, retires before April" ("Roundup." Guardian Weekkly, Marc. 3, 2006: 2).
