How different would this world be if women “Ruled our World”!

Don’t you think we, as opposed to men, would make more effort bringing about real change, promote basic human values, human compassion, human affection.

Could we make this world a better place?... lets face it men have been ruling the world for thousands of years and ‘mucked’ it up.

What would you do question

We could look to Margaret Thatcher for a clue, or perhaps Hilary Clinton - does gender affect your ability to lead?

Ummmmm….. not necessarily Martin - perhaps merely a case of “I have a dream…...” to see a day when politics is feminised - when female values move into the public sphere in a way we haven’t quite done yet!

I would say Maggie Thatcher although hated was one of the strongest leaders the UK ever had, then there is Godlie Meyher. Idra Ghandi (excuse spelling on those 2) then Hillary Clinton and Sarah Palin all strong women who by the type of attacks they get prove how scared the male politicians are of them getting into power. In business if you look at the finance industry women are now in 72% of the top jobs. So I would say the only reason women are not more in power is due to fear.

I don’t think the women who get top jobs represent women at all.

They have to compete in a male dominated world they have to share that drive and lust they have to adapt to fit in to the male dominated world they are entering so I think they do not truly represent the female values.

Most female attributes are seen as weakness ... bearing children and caring for them, our emotional soft side empathy and sympathy are all ridiculed as touchy feely huggy stuff…

To succeed at the top women have to leave these qualities behind..

Its a shame because those are the qualities that make us who we are and what we are and until those things are placed ahead of money and profit nothing will change even if there is a woman at the helm.

Ja, the Iron Lady was she not referred as - though many may have disliked her I think many respected her too.  I think its because women are precisely different to men that we would do a better job - are we not better listeners, communicators, problem solving skills to name but a few. It is surprising to note that more and more men are in fact calling for women to hold leadership roles…

Do you think there are fewer women in ‘top jobs’ because of the environment in which women have to compete, or because many women are more interested in raising a child/family rather than pursuing a career?

Its still pretty much a ‘mans world - men still rule’. I also think its harder for women to compete because of the pressure to combine child care, family commitments (unlike men who appear more comfortable putting work before personal) ‘top jobs’ are all consuming - 24-hour-a-day ... you got to give it your life and this for most women is a challenge!

Although,I would still vote for her! Sarah Palin isn’t as knowledgeable in demestic and foreign policy.
Hillary Clinton has many more years of experience and would make a great president.
