#ElectWomen 2017

If you are one of those chauvinists or feminists still stuck at the level of qualifications, it has been nice having you here. Now, F–k off.

There will be many men and women who wont vote for Hillary Clinton simply because they believe that a woman cannot be POTUS. This has absolutely nothing to do with her qualification!

We are all agreed that women are as qualified leaders as men. We have, therefore, moved on up to the level where the distinguishing factor between men and women leadership is gender, not qualifications or lack thereof. The default voting pattern for members in most patriarchal societies is voting for men irrespective of qualifications.

This is my starting point. It is clear that in the coming elections many women wont be voted for, not because they are not qualified, simply because they are women. Put another way, most of us will vote for men simply because they are men. We still use the words “men” and “leader” interchangeably.

My point for pushing people to elect women is not to have women leadership as an end in itself, but as a means to an end. The end envisaged in #ElectWomen is that more women in political leadership will serve as a model of what is possible for our young daughters. In addition, it is much more difficult for the executive to ignore women in nominative or appointive positions like is the case currently.

Vote for women in positions of Governors, MP, MCA
