Down to 2 old white guys, again


Since 2010, 54 women came to power as prime ministers, presidents or chancellors…

Estonia, Singapore, Ethiopia and Finland – these are some of the 21 countries currently governed by a female president or prime minister…Yet a woman president of the U.S. still remains only a hypothetical.

The 2020 Democratic nomination contest originally featured six women candidates, a record number. But the most prominent female candidates for the Democratic nomination – Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren and Amy Klobuchar – have all dropped out, and the focus of the race has narrowed to two males.

[This] research examines what countries where women run the government have in common – and why the U.S. still lags behind.

Same as it ever was. Not even any new lies to supplant all the old rationales.
