How do you think our country would be different if we had a female president?

Ciao. Ciao.
I honestly don't think a female president would be radically different from a male one, but we're well past due and I would gladly vote for a female candidate!

I also don't think things would be much different. In this political climate, people who are elected do not differ significantly in their views: most hug the middle ground and most pander to the industrial-medical complex: male, female, black, white or anything in between.

I think the only substantial differences would be how people perceived the president, if there was still serious sexism going on. There are TONS of other countries (some which we might consider to be less civilized than our own...) who have female leaders, and the results are just like any other male leader.

Gender shouldn't matter, qualifications of the candidate should be most important. As a feminist and a woman I would love to see more women in leadership positions, but I care more about the platform and policies. I'd be just as happy if a man was working towards narrowing the gender inequalities than if a woman was.

Hey, a woman president might make laws more realistic.

Women have kids at home.

Not all women have kids at home. We aren't all breeders. Thanks.

I really don't think gender makes people that different.

Sex shouldn't be the factor that makes a difference.

Political ideas of an individual candidate that happens to have identify as female might.

I think the USA is very sadly lagging behind in terms of sex and race discrimination, however - making things a factor when they shouldn't be.

Depends on the person, not the gender.

It wouldn't be different, honestly. Every candidate has their own ideals and standings, so frankly, gender doesn't matter at all. A man with an ideology and a woman with an ideology are just people with ideologies.

Agreed. I really don't think the candidate's gender should matter all that much, and I don't necessarily think a female president would be all that different from a male president except for how she would be addressed. I assume it wouldn't be "Mr. President" for a female, lol.

We've had a female Prime Minister, and it wasn't all that different to have a male one. Although there are many who say that she left the country worse off than when she came into power ...

I would hope shed be more invested in womens issues, but in reality that might not be the case.

I don't think there would be much of a difference, but I would hope that she would invest more interest in women's issues and education.

I think that the political climate would change in that the news people and pundits would direct a lot of sexism at a female president.

Exactly this. I'd vote for a female candidate too.

But would you vote for her, even if you didn't agree with her, simply because she's a woman?

NOT AT ALL! Except for the fact that someone of the opposite sex is ruling our country. Which again, there would be no difference in their ruling.

I mean people who look at sex over political ideology are just sad because that female candidate might be a better President than that male candidate. But if you dont make your vote count based upon ideologies you will never know...

I can't imagine it being significantly different.

I think it would be significantly different in mostly positive ways. It would show a change in the all white male status quo. It would be more egalitarian.

I also think there would be a huge backlash and the sexism would just...make me lose faith in humanity.


What we would also need, in addition to a woman president, would be women more represented in congress (as well as non-white men and women).

I think it would be a huge step as far as country acceptance of equal right.

It depends on the person. The gender means nothing.

I don't think our country's changed having females secretaries of state. I think there would be no change with President either.

It would probably depend on who she was. I bet we'd have a different society to begin with if we voted a female president. It will happen though.

I don't know if it would make any changes to women's issues because there are many women running for office that have obvious internalized misogyny going on.
