Here’s the content I’m basing this post off of,
There are a lot of relationships that support this claim. I think most of it relies on the voting system itself. Winner-take all democracies are inherently masculine, and they reinforce the “conditions of an anarchic” that would “force them to make the same bellicose decisions that men do.”
A voting system (such as Proportional Representation) turns up the meager percentage from 16% to 45-50%. At that point the government takes on a care-taker role… which solves a lot of social issues (including population decline). That being said, I think (most) women could only get ahead in our system if they conformed to masculine style decision making.
As we’ve learned in class, there are also stark differences among societies where women are given equal footing with men. I’ll try to expand on any point I’ve made, upon request. What does everyone else think?
