Dilma Rousseff may be the next president of Brazil. I like her biography very much:

"Dilma participated actively on any of the armed efforts of Colina, but she was known too for her public activities as a Marxism teacher to labour union members and editor of the newspaper The Piquet. She knew how to handle weapons, confront the police and also guerrilla tactics

The attorney which prosecuted the organization called her "Joan of Arc of subversion",

Dilma was taken to the OBAN headquarters, the same place were Vladimir Herzog would be tortured to death five years later. She was allegedly tortured for 22 days by punching, ferule, and electric shock devices. As Maria Luisa Belloque, a cellmate, said "Dilma was shock even with car wiring.""
