Women ROCK. And We Can Run A Country Too!

I’ve tried to stay out of the political “you-know-what-storm” (okay, the shit-storm), that has been going on.  But tonight I’m jumping in….  With a question.  And it’s a big question.

Why CAN’T a woman RUN a country like ours?

Women run corporations, families, large and small businesses.  Women are MORE than capable of leading a country.  But why has it been so hard for America to accept that fact?  Women are smart.  Women are tough.  Women are compassionate.  Women are leaders.  Women are STRONG.  All are qualities our country desperately needs right now from the next leader.

A female running a country is nothing new.  New for America?  Yes.  New for the world?  No.

Here is an eye-opening list of other countries’ female leaders….


Helle Thorning-Schmidt, Prime Minister of Denmark

Margaret Thatcher, Prime Minister of The United Kingdom

Yingluck Shinawatra, Prime Minister of Thailand

Angela Merkel, Chancellor of Germany

Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, President of Argentina

Dilma Rousseff, President of Brazil

Julia Gillard, Prime Minister of Australia

Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, President of Liberia

Sheik Hasina Wajed, Prime Minister of Bangladesh

Johanna Sigurdardottir, Prime Minister of Iceland

Laura Chinchilla, President of Costa Rica

Tarja Halonen, President of Finland

Dalia Grybauskaite, President of Lithuania

Kamla Persad-Bissessar, Prime Minister of Trinidad and Tobago


What a list.  What an amazing contribution women have made to the world.

So please, please, please… ignore the fact that the BEST candidate is a female.  Forget it.  Completely.  And instead focus on the fact that we have an incredibly smart, capable, sharp, tough, mentally stable (and I don’t say that one lightly, especially in comparison to her competition!) …and STRONG candidate to vote for in November.

It’s simple: Women Rock.  There is no reason a woman can’t be in charge of our great nation.  Try and remember that through all this craziness.  Vote for the person, and their ability and skills.  Not for the fact that they are male or female.
