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