When Women Rule

Submitted by ub on Sat, 01/16/2016 - 13:00

When women rule the world, it will probably be a kinder, gentler place to live in. Wake up, world, the greater gender is already the clear majority.

Not only in politics, but in math and science, and it now turns out male teachers have been outnumbered inside the classroom.

That glass ceiling everyone talks about is going to be dismantled and reassembled as a retractable skylight, presumably so our female bosses can have their herb garden with better northern exposure.

There are sleeper cells fomenting power inside our schools. A woman is more likely to hold a college degree than her male counterpart, and more likely to start her own business. And we're not just talking about inventing a delicious cookie recipe, or run-proof stockings. We're talking powerful positions.
