Brazil's first female President-elect, Dilma Rousseff, has said she intends to make gender equality a priority for her government.

Ms Rousseff said she wanted parents to be able to tell their daughters, "yes, a woman can".

She also promised a sense of continuity with the government of Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, from whom she takes over in January.
