A commentary has been addded entitled: Women as Political Leaders: Not a gender issue. It argues that modern history is showered with women as political leaders and Heads of government. When women first emerged in these roles, it was regarded as ‘breaking a glass ceiling’ – a breakthrough for the female gender in occupying high positions once regarded as the preserve of men. There was truth in that sentiment at the beginning of that revolutionary trend, but even though women leaders do still attract support from some women - and the opposition of some men - purely on the basis of gender, the human race has moved on from solely gender considerations. Today, women as political leaders is not a gender issue. They have to prove that they are every bit as capable as men.
