When I stated I would vote for Senator Hillary Clinton for US president because she is a woman, my boyfriend asked if that was considered sexist. He supposed if a man were to make such a claim that he could be viewed as such.
I was quick to point out that unfortunately, most of the world’s population believes that men and women are not equal. A female leader can empower women around the world. Yet there have been so few. Take Britain’s Margaret Thatcher; or Benazir Bhutto, a hero in her own right; or the famous Indira Gandhi.
Also, men and women come from very different histories, and therefore have different perspectives on life. Women are intuitive, with a warm heart and a strong will. All the qualities of a great leader.
