With a lot of countries holding themselves on high moral for equality for women, when it comes to politics, they sure do lack some proof at time. Not only has there never been a female president in for example the United States, women are also highly underrepresented in government. Only 20% of the U.S. congress is made up of women, which is shocking considering the 51% of the U.S. population are females.
Muslims Countries have had more muslim female presidents than the U.S. by far. That is obvious considering the United States has had no female presidents. So, maybe the U.S. could take a lesson from muslim majority countries when it comes to female politicians. I listed a couple of them for you!
