Leadership roles worldwide are undergoing an energetic change from heads-of-state to positions of authority in major businesses. Men had dominated these roles since the days of the hunter/ gatherer, tens of thou sands of years ago, when the father figure dominated the social scene. Now, women are finding leadership roles in countries the world over.
According to an interesting report published in The Tribune on March 1, women in the 114th Congress have introduced more bills in both the Senate and the House, despite the fact that there were only 104 women members of Congress out of a total of 535 members.
Over the past seven years in the Senate, the average woman senator has introduced some 96.31 bills, while the average male senator introduced 70.72 bills. In the House, more bills were sponsored by women than by men. This information certainly proves the important role women are playing in our government.
A prime step that will underscore this dynamic role women are playing in Congress will be the election of the first woman president, a step that will have a nationally as well as an internationally positive reaction.
