Why the world would be a better place is a woman was in charge. Let me be 100% clear, a black woman! Hell, Forbes even wrote an article on why black women would be a better fit to lead. Ok, ok. I know what you're thinking, I was thinking it too. Women are too emotional to run a country, let alone the world. But let's get real, there are plenty of women like myself, who rarely show emotion. Who think before they act. Who are intelligent. Who are successful. Don't base your opinion on what you see on social media and shows like Love & Hip Hop. Base it on REAL women.
Simone, creator of Simone Does Life said "Yes, I feel like we are more compassionate towards others plights...well some of us." Mecole, creator of Mommy's Got Me said "No we're too emotional", and I think most people would agree.
Let's take a look back in time for a minute. I'm just going to name a few women who took action when it was necessary, and made major changes in history that gave us the platforms we have today. And let's not pretend like the saying isn't true, behind every successful man is a woman.
It took a woman to help bring slaves to freedom. I think you know who I'm talking about. Harriet Tubman. Daisy Bates, she helped desegregate all-white Central High School in Little Rock, AK in 1957.
Mary McLeod Bethune, she opened her own school for black girls in 1904. It was later merged into a college. I am most definitely not saying men aren't capable, but let's be realistic. We plan, we think, we nurture, we can easily adapt, we practice self-care which in turn, allows us to care for others (the world), we are creative, and we like to build strong teams or support systems with one another.
The men (let's be specific here, clear (my word for white people) men, don't seem to be doing a great job. We are always at war, it's always about money, power, and they don't care about the safety of others, especially the poor. We want everyone to win. Forbes set it best, "observing the outstanding level of talent of black women who hold leadership roles in organizations, there are others who have argued that the dominance of White men in leadership roles is not a reflection of their true competence, but a reflection of biases in how we choose to select leaders."
What is it going to take for the rest of the world to see that it would be a much better place if it a woman was running things?
