Reasons as to why we don’t elect most of the women who run for office…

1. Women don’t run for office…

2. Women  don’t campaign at night…

3. Women don’t have money…

4. We don’t need women leaders; we just need “good leaders”…

5. Because parties do not give women the chances…

6. Women are prevented from running for office by their husbands…

7. Because of “systemic inequalities” (whatever that means)…

8. Women don’t give us their “policies”, “visions” or “manifestoes”…
   
9.Because women are harassed and abused on the campaign trail…

10. Because women just become like men once elected…

11. Because some women in some parties are against women issues…And more!

SERIOUSLY  ???!

LET’S MOVE PAST THESE LAME EXCUSES, AND VOTE FOR ALL THOSE WOMEN WHO ACTUALLY  MANAGE (AGAINST ALL ODDS) TO RUN FOR OFFICE!

LETS GIVE OUR DAUGHTERS MORE WOMEN-LEADER ROLE MODELS.

As I always put it, Gender parity in leadership in all other social spheres will always lag behind gender parity in political leadership.

Currently women representation in politics in the world is at 19.5% while  percentage of women in corporate boards is at 17%

In EU, the corporate boards are being firmly encouraged to ensure that they have at least 40% women,with women political representation standing at about 22%, although the Nordic countries average is 42%… 

I unequivocally state here that all the above are excuses masquerading as reasons!  Compare Hillary Clinton and Barrack Obama in ’08 Dems nominations…

    Using this logic, then we should all vote for Martha, no?
