Equal Opportunity Catastrophe Makers

condi_livenWhen I saw a CNN report on the joint press conference with US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni, my first thought was, “Hey, its two ladies talking about important stuff – like peace treaties.”

I didn’t even get the whole gist of the news report because I was too excited about seeing two women speaking on the world stage on behalf of millions of humans. After centuries, nay – millennia, of male rule, it is nice to see some feminine leadership at such political heights.

I doubt that I would agree with very much of Condi’s political views, but it is good to see that women have just as much opportunity to mess up the world as men. Although it was a queer change – seeing these two women talking about something on international television besides fashion or diapers – it is a welcome change. A very welcome change.

    I don’t think that we should go easy on them just because they’re female. If want equality they should be critisised as much as their male counterparts.
