Although I am a Man I do believe more Women should be in Political Office's.
The reason I believe that is, Women are much more Compasssionate than Men will ever be.
When it comes to the well being of the People overall Women will always support the issues that matter the most to the People.
Women tend to be more sensitive to what People really need in order to Live a more Prosperous Life so Yes by all means let's have more Women in Office.

Women have every right to become a politician. As American citizens, we need to take chances and eliminate gender stereotypes.

Absolutely there should be more women in gov't. They are natural arbitrators in family disputes, peacemakers and compromisers at home, at work and in social situations.
Women would work for the best future, not just for their children but for the country.

Thanks,

All in all it depends on what the politician stands by. Be it man or woman, either one has to be able to prove themselves as capable politicians that people can trust and believe in through their words and actions within the community and state. As for sex scandals, women politicians are just as likely to be involved in them as the men. It just depends who is careful with their actions of conduct as well as upholding their image to prevent damaging their political careers.

I believe that females should have some type of control in the polical game because with all the men that in it are too hard headed. and Plus, the day we have a female president will make a time of a differences
