Do women get a harder time in politics than men? If so, why?

    The difficulties that attractive might face were a discussion topic on one of our South African radio stations last week. You can be pretty and sexy but not pretty and clever and good at your job? or something like that?

    The little arrow sits in the tail hey, and in the rhythm. A little dance, a jig, with the warning that she is not part of the brotherhood and will not get favours because she is a girl the way men look out for other men:)

    This is a very wise statement and one that we must teach our children.

    Neutral, as far as it goes, is linked with equal human rights for men and women.Some can't seem to see that:) We build on each others' lives.We hope that the next generation will be stronger, do better, go further; save the world and the human race:)

    Around 10% in business and politics and as MDs or CEOs count as many? Or is it that that is enough?

    Women are nice people? Who have you been hanging around? Women can be just as mean, cruel, criminal, cheating, and irresponsible as men. Perfect political material.

    Social structures for political and economic power are stacked against women. This is historic and not deliberately done by men today. Men must learn to recognize those constructs and to change them.

    :) I can't and don't want to comment on American specifics but I voted you up for the differentiations that you made about the manner in which women are targeted. We do not have to support an ideology to recognize ABILITY:) and to be decent to others

    @feenix:In principle you are right but it's still women generally and the women within various groupings that are more disadvantaged."A man's world" "A woman's lot."How long is it that women can own property, sign contracts or be her father's heir?

    Your fascination with and complex on how white males are "keeping women down" shows your on hypocrisy. Instead of focusing on the "inequality" aspect of "white males" how about focusing on many of the Arab countries were the problem really exists.

    When a strong woman holds office she tends to consider the well-being of the country and the family in her decisions:)
