Aung San Suu Kyi, the pro-democracy icon of Myanmar, attended her first session in parliament on Monday, more than two months after winning historic elections.

The widely admired opposition leader, who recently returned from a whirlwind tour through Europe, had spent much of the past 20 years under house arrest during the military’s brutal rule over the southeast Asian country.

President Thein Sein has been instituting a number of democratic reforms in the country, but Suu Kyi, among other opposition figures, have called for a quicker pace of such reforms before foreign nations suspend all their sanctions against Myanmar.
