A woman head of the state is still a rarity as borne out by the fact that in the last sixty years, in the one hundred and ninety-five countries of the world, there have been less than a hundred women who have reached the position of president or prime-minister. Thus despite all the progress, development and lip-service given to 'women's issues', the reality is that women still continue to be the largest suffering minority in many parts of the world. Seen against this backdrop every woman who has served as the prime minister or president of her country represents the triumph of the human spirit and serves as an inspiration for all womankind. From Golda Meir to Margaret Thatcher to Indira Gandhi to Kamla Persad Bissessar, these women have proved that women are as good if not better than man and gender is no bar when it comes to matters of politics and governance.
