A random thought....

I know my blog is supposedly exclusively dedicated to Lebanon but here is a thought nevertheless... did anyone ever notice the increased number of women in Politics and especially in Foreign Affairs?

First and foremost, in the USA Ms. Gondolliza Rice a.k.a. Gondy.
Second and equally important Ms. Tzipi Livni in Israel.
Followed by Dr. Angela Dorothea Merkel as the current Chancellor of Germany, Ms. Margaret Beckett in the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, Micheline Calmy-Rey in Switzerland, Bentia Ferrero-Waldner in Austria and as commissioner of External Relations for the European Union, Dr. Ursula Plassnik in Austria, Dora Bakoyannis in Greece, Joy Ogwu in Nigeria, María Consuelo Araújo Castro in Columbia,Valgerður Sverrísdóttir in Iceland, Kinga Göncz in Hungary, Dame Billie Miller in Barbados , Dr. Nkosazana C. Dlamini-Zuma in South Africa, Dodo Aïchatou Mindaoudou in Niger, Alcinda Abreu in Moçambique, Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović in Croatia, Rita Kieber-Beck in Liectenstein, Antoinette Batumubwira in Burundi, Lygia Kraag-Keteldijk in Suriname, Asha-Rose Migiro in Tanzania, Mariam Aladji Boni Diallo in Benin, Anna Fotygak in Poland, Joyce Banda in Malawi, etc.

Would the world be a better place with more women in power? Would it be more peaceful? Would there be less war, poverty and hunger and more attention to social, environmental, public and world welfare?

I personnally believe a women in a position of power would be able to do wonders! I trust our intellect, our rational and our instincts. Such women command respect and admiration and usually have both when dealing in a roomful of politicians.

However, women intereacting with other women on that level when the fate of the world is at stake... literally, well I am not so sure anymore. I suppose a socioligist, psychologist or even historian would be more scientifically ready to answer this question...

That was just a random thought.
