A proposal aimed at reducing war and encouraging peace by reserving high public leadership roles for women only received far less than majority approval in a recently concluded poll of IEET readers.
Just 28% of respondents agreed that the idea is worth trying, while a plurality, 41%, rejected it altogether. Another 16% prefer the approach of employing genetic engineering to imbue all humans with peaceful qualities. About 6% of those responding think women should not only not lead, but should have their voting franchise rescinded.
If only women were allowed to hold high public office in all countries,
would we have more peace and less war?
