Point/Counterpoint: Women in Office

Female politicians have made big waves this past year. The first female speaker of the house was sworn in, the most popular governor in America is a woman, and now the NY Times editorial board recommends electing the first female president (even though the Times ran an article addressing political nepotism). Women still remain underrepresented in elected office, accounting for 24%of state legislators, 18% of governors, and about 16% of Congress.

While women in the United States are making political waves, individuals around the globe still hold mixed opinions about women and political leadership.
