Over the course of human history, the role of women in society has dramatically changed. For many years woman have had the role of household manager and the person who raised the children to adulthood. Since the start of the Industrial Revolution through the present time, the role of woman in society has dramatically changed. As the cost of living has risen, the growth and availability of the job market increased, and gender barriers within the workforce have diminished, woman from all over the country and even the world for that matter, have since entered and thrived in the world of employment. As I think about how the U.S. and subsequently the world have started to embrace the change in job culture, I start to think that woman are just as good if not better than men in leadership roles for many reasons. Woman are better multi-taskers on average than men, they are not driven by male testosterone, and they see the world in a different, broader perspective than men do. According to the United Nations, there are 193 independent states, yet only 32 of them have female leaders. Here's my story:
Throughout my life i have been keen on observing how woman think and conduct themselves. As a child, I grew up in home with 3 woman, 2 older sisters and obviously my mother. For much of my childhood, my father worked night shift at his job, so I grew up with a house full of nothing but women. As a result, I really got a first hand perspective on just how woman think, act, and carry themselves during all different kinds of situations. I really focused on my mother for I get my personality from her, but I look like my father. From observing her, and eventually all woman in society, I've realized that woman are much better at multitasking than man. Men tend to see life through what I call tunnel vision, where they tend to only focus on one task at hand while woman are able to be more multi-functional than men. As a result, I believe because of this superior ability to multitask, that they would be better overall leaders than men.
I'll say this right off the bat since it is the God's honest truth, men tend to think with one head, and its not the one connected to the neck. Male driven testosterone really hinders man to think logically sometimes. Because of this, it causes them to act more in a primitive manner than woman. Because of this, when one's pride or pockets are hurt, man tends to feel obligated to lash out towards another through violence or irrational thought. As a result, a man with power or money will use more extreme measures such as war to retaliate rather than use logical and rational thought and language processing to subdue the situation. As a result, over the course of history, we as a world have caused great bloodshed and harm towards one another in a male dominated world. In the end, because of male testosterone, it is becoming ever more clear that having a female leader is something that could possibly shift the world of international cooperation.
As a result of growing up with woman, and being in relationships have they be friendly or intimate, I have learned and observed that woman view the world in a much different way than men. Women, as a majority, tend to view the world in a broader perspective than men. Although it drives me crazy that woman think of every possible angle of every possible situation, I think that gender trait or quality is something that a world or national leader should have to be a good leader. Being able to look at every possible angle of any given situation or conflict, allows one to make better overall choices that can help lead to better, more logical and rational choices and decisions. Although not all men see the world through tunnel vision, woman tend to think with both their heart and mind when looking into a certain situation in life. Woman are much more caring than men because their brain is hard-wired to think that way because of the nurturing and caring they have and give to their children.
In the end, I believe woman would make better overall leaders than men. In the past few years, women have received more PHD's than men which goes to show one that women are just as hardworking and intelligent if not more intelligent, logical, and rational thinkers than men. Women are not driven by testosterone which in many cases causes men to lash out when their pride or pockets are hurt by another person, company, or nation as a whole. In conclusion, women just perceive life in a different, much more broader perspective than men do which, in my opinion, makes me think that they would make great world leader or in this case, Presidents than men as a whole.
