    I'm here for you ladies

    Wow, only according to the Guardian (Aussie) 1% of females want to be politicians. Are we the worse off? Well given the historical record, no not really. Maggie Thatcher? Suck up to economic consensus. Current chancellor Germany. A pawn of the banks. Na.

    This is the problem with quotas for gender equality. They fail to take into account the difference in male and female humans in terms of their emotional and psychological and physical drives and capabilities.

    For example there is no reason why females should make up 50% of the blue chip corporate CEO population. Maybe the reason they don't is because females are less emotionally concerned with power and status than males are for easily explainable evolutionary reasons i.e. males gain sexual access to females through visible demonstrations of power and so they are emotionally driven more than women are to seek roles that display power.

    Under Margaret Thatcher the whole World was a safer place.
    What Great Britain is looking for is another Great leader, and any leader who can step into her shoes, needs iron balls.

    I am not sure what constitutes 'pop' psychology. I am just outlining an argument about why imposing quotas for sexual equality in employment roles is jumping the gun until you can demonstrate that there is equal aspiration and ability on the parts of the two sexes to occupy those roles. It may be differences in the preferences and/or abilities of the sexes that lead to the inequality in the sexual distribution rather than gender oppression as seems to be assumed by the quota argument.

    In the case of power and leadership roles I would say there are plausible reasons why inequality is a natural rather than a manufactured status quo.
