There are currently 22 women holding the highest offices of leadership in their respective countries around the world: presidents, prime ministers, and other heads of state. The United States is poised to have its first. Why has it taken so long? What are the barriers? Will it ever happen?

Lovely, insightful perspective, Eric. This should be one of your hubs. You have banged the nail head into the cement. I appreciate the enlightenment which clarifies the issue of women in leadership in a way I had not seen before. Thanks for answering
Thank you for a great question. Before I die I hope I can say to my mom in heaven "see what you were part of".
Very well expressed, MizBejabbers. You've given a thoughtful view of our country's perception of women in leadership and women in general. I appreciate the historical perspective. Thank you very much for your answer. I hope it enlightens others.
Right on point, Patricia. Thank you for a great answer.
That is an excellent observation, Old-Empresario. It makes sense. Although women in the US military have excelled within the ranks, the stereotype is alive and well, influencing perceptions of how they might lead. Thanks for answering.
