Viewpoint: What if women ruled the world?

BBC: Not so long ago, the idea that women might rule the world seemed slightly ridiculous – like something out of science fiction. But in an essay to mark International Women’s Day, political analyst and former White House press secretary Dee Dee Myers argues it’s now a topic that can be seriously discussed.

Women clearly lacked the intellectual capacity and emotional fortitude to make the difficult decisions that leadership required. It wasn’t bias, it was biology – it was just the way women were made.

But that was then. In recent decades, attitudes and ideas have changed – and fast. That’s not to say that every corner of the world has welcomed women moving from the traditional and private into the modern and public. But move they have.

So what’s changed? A lot. As a huge and growing body of research and experience makes clear, empowering women makes things better. Not perfect. But better.

  1. Sorry to say but my personal experience as women in Project Management or Head of Departments was not positive. They had much more inter-personal strife, especially with their female staff, than men. (but that is not as Head of State, admittedly).
