Los líderes de la madre tierra

Women throughout the world continue to gain political power.

Women are hardly strangers to battles for top leadership positions - France's Ségolène Royal and America's Hillary Clinton launched Presidential initiatives. Other women have been victorious in such elections ::: think Israel (Golda Meier), India (Indira Gandhi), Great Britain (Margaret Thatcher), and most recently Thailand (Yingluck Shinawatra).

How long before the US elects a female President?
Do you think that as more women come into power, Global Summits will begin to take on the characteristics of "The View"????
MJ, what do YOU think of this?

Here in the States, the Republican Party now has a viable 2012 female presidential candidate, not a token, not just a face, but a credible, hard-charging, vote-getting, charismatic and controversial candidate who, at this point, may have a real chance at winning the 2012 nomination. The question is, Is Michele Bachmann electable?

Grace Ke of the Association of Women for Action and Research explains why it's almost impossible to elect a female president in Singapore.

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
