"I lived in Venezuela for 12 years. I don't want my daughter to grow up in a country without good administration," Lombardi said. "I'm ashamed of what Lula did, I'm not going to vote for a man who is in jail. Bolsonaro, because of his military educational training, will rescue the values that the army teaches - family, the nation and God." REUTERS/Pilar Olivares SEARCH "BOLSONARO ELENAO" FOR THIS STORY.

Fernandes pointed to comments by Bolsonaro's vice-presidential candidate, retired general Hamilton Mourao, who described homes run by women as 'factories for misfits.' "Nothing would be worse for women than a victory for Bolsonaro and Mourao," said Fernandes. She added that Haddad's choice of running mate, avowed feminist Manuela D'Avila, gave her confidence that they would combat violence against women.

For Nicacio, Bolsonaro's tough talk on crime is more assuring, such as a proposal to chemically castrate convicted rapists. "My memories during the military dictatorship are that I had a good education and nothing was missing," she said. "What I am now professionally, I owe to the dictatorship."
