Italian elections 23 June 2008
Berlusconi's missed quotas

Ahead of the recent Italian elections, Silvio Berlusconi announced that if he were re-elected, women would occupy thirty percent of positions in his new cabinet. Now re-elected for a third time as Prime Minister, he has reneged on his promise appointing only four women – two with portfolio and two without - amounting to just nineteen percent. Reporter Emma Wallis in Rome has been hearing the reaction to Berlusconi's missed quotas.
