I really appreciate you asking this question.
In reading your question (and some of the answers) I feel that a lot of our problems in America are due to this relentless desire to constantly point the finger at someone else.
"Those people don't get it. It's their failed political ideology."
The goal is no longer to solve problems, but instead to call everyone else's solution a failure and not try to actually learn and improve. No one in this country is perfect. No one in this country is faultless. Blaming others may feel good, but ultimately we cut off our own intellect and problem solving abilities in doing so.
In a way, this inability to take responsibility is one of the worst parts of the male ego, but I'm sure it manifests itself in the female ego as well.
There also seems to be some confusion that all societies in human history have been created by males. In order for a society to be created you need both men and women, unless you want to die out really fast. Sorry.
There are also plenty of societies that have been and are run by women. The Minangkabau, Berbers, Tuareg, Sardinian people, Mosuo, and Rhade are all strongly matrilocal societies.
Also there was Queen Victoria, Queen Elizabeth I, and Queen Elizabeth II.
And let's not forget about one of the most famous events in English history when Queen Elizabeth led her country to victory over the Spanish Armada. This is the sort of research that I would recommend doing before claiming that only men can run societies. That is the kind of unhealthy ego I believe the person asking this question is referring to.
