Do women provide better leadership then men?
Not a single female MP had been elected to parliament until 1918. One hundred years since the Representation of the People Act allowed women a say in British politics, it's fitting to remember the great contribution they have made since.

But do they make better leaders than men? Would world war two have even happened with a female in charge? It cetainly may have turned out different. We will never know.

But what we can say for sure is what makes a good leader or manager. A good communicator, a good motivator, a good organiser and of course having a good vision and being able to set clear goals for those who follow. Many of these traits are found in women in abundance.

If the law was enacted tomorrow to prevent any men from entering parliament, could this lead to a more effective leadership. Thatcher showed us that even the top job can be held by a woman. There are currently 23 women world leaders, 34% of the British cabinet members are female and over 190 MPs are female, 32% of the total.

Their more emotianal side makes them sympathetic to matters affecting constituents. Womens organisational skills allow them to multi task without losing focus. And their naturally caring side means that descisions affecting others are more likely to be taken with more thought. But if we agree democracies are heatheir with an accurrate representation of the population then females are still far behind being represented in most areas of government.

With a currently female prime minister, however, women can still expect the same critisims levied at any leader - male or female. She has failed to successfully lead a team of politicians with a clear mandate from the British people to leave the EU.
