Women power continues to elude superpower United States
Undated: The big brother United States may boast of domineering status in the world in terms of politics, culture , development and economy but it still cannot match some of developing countries as far as female leadership is concerned.
In over four hundred years of its overbearing presence in the world scenario, somewhere on the top without doubt, the US has not elected any female as the leader. Hillary Clinton, arguably, the first lady to even reach nomination stage for the post of President of United States but lost the opportunity to Donald Trump.
A cursory glance at other countries like India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Israel United Kingdom will tell you the story. Why is it so? Is it a conscious effort of the people of america or just a electoral combination or coincidence that it happened but facts will remain facts and remain consigned to the history in the times to come.
Indira Gandhi in India, Srimavo Bhandharnayake in Sri Lanka, Golda Meir in Israel, Haseena Sheikh in Bangladesh, Benazir Bhutto in Pakistan , Margaret Thatcher in the UK are examples of how the mix of developed and developing nations set aside the gender bias to elect female leaders. ..but not in the case of US. may be a topic of socio-political study.
