    Default Male vs Female leaders

    I am wondering how other see the difference between those two.

    What would you pinpoint as their strengths and thier weakness ?
    Also I am wondering which of those traits you see as a pure projection of media and public upon them ?

    Can you see yourself voting for a woman ever ? (explain)

    If you ever had a female head of state did you noticed any noticable difference in leadership style when you compare it with a male leadership ?


    I could ask much more questions but I think this is enough to make it obvious at what I am shooting at. Also I am asking this is a quite general way but I don't mind practical examples at all.

    EDIT: this is thread is about differences in male and female leading styles.

    Our Sovereign, Queen Elizabeth, is naturally a woman. And all of Australia voted for her in 1999, except for one small territory.

    Our Head of State, Australia's 25th Governor-General, Her Excellency Ms Quentin Bryce AC , is also a woman.

    Our Commander-in-Chief is also a woman.

    Our Deputy Prime Minister is also a woman.

    And we plainly see that it doesn't make any difference whether it is a man or a woman in office. What we do see is that our Constitution works whether it is a man or a woman occupying the position.

    So we wonder what all the fuss is about. The women of Australia/New Zealand gained the vote first in the world - so perhaps we take it for granted.

    Well, what's better? Men are more assertive and women are more compassionate.

    Men and women are individuals, and it would be wrong to suggest that their eladership capabilities were based simply on biological sex. There have been terrible women leaders and good men leaders, and vice versa.

    Of course they are. But that does not prevent most people from thinking or believing that there is a capital difference in most cases.

    That is why I said that part about projecting.

    Female - just a feeling.

    Nowhere can I assume the context for which I speak, and nowhere was there a rule that said any leader will provide the motivation to act and take control of any context. A decision is useless unless it takes care of the problem or brings forth something advantageous. Nowhere is there a full proof plan for success. A good leader does not shudder when the world plans for opposition, as then is the time to gain the upper hand.

    Hillary Clinton will make a great leader. More so than if she would have won this time.

    Gender is irrelevant to me when I vote. I look for competence rather than which reproductive organs they have.
