Argentina has elected their first female president, Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner. She is the wife of the former President. Hearing this news this morning I began to ponder why some countries have been electing female leaders for a long time and others have never had a female leader. Countries that have been blasted for their treatment of women have elected female leaders, such as India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh and others, like the United States, the land of equal opportunity, has still failed to elect a female leader. Why is this? It is my opinion that the government should be forced to make half the representatives male and half female. Each state should have one female senator and one male senator. This might bring balance to the world. Here’s an AP article comparing her to Hillary Clinton.
