They may hate Margaret Thatcher as much as they want but she was the one who made sure that Britain came out the economic crisis.I don't believe gender is an issue regarding how good or bad a president might be. The UK had probably one of the most hated politicians in the world in Margaret Thatcher, former Prime Minister. Currently, Nicola Sturgeon, the Scottish First Minister has the highest popularity rating of any politician in the country. Her entire reason for entering politics was because she hated everything Margaret Thatcher stood for. Personality and integrity are far more important than whatever sex anyone happens to be born.
The Philippines had 2 female presidents. The first is Cory Aquino in 1986 and Gloria Arroyo in 2001 when Erap Estrada was ousted via coup d' etat. Even though I am female, I'd say that there is not much difference whether the president is a man or a woman. Maybe it would depend on the kind of person that president is and also the kind of people around him.
