    One learns of great achievements of China from our posters.

    It is indeed worth knowing.

    While China grows with money and infrastructure, it appears that the basic human requirements are missing.

    Women are treated as sub humans.

    If they were not, then surprising such a populous country with teeming millions, cannot have or produce one woman of intelligence or with leadership qualities.

    Very surprising for a Nation which spews pious platitudes and want to educate the world of finer things of life!

    I am sure as an indian you truelly know the place of woman in society.

    The female labor participation rate is 68 percent in China compared to 29 percent in India. I hope one day when situation has improved in China, you will finally take a look at your own country. :rolleyes:

    I sure do, quite a few are deciding the destiny of the country.

    And quite a few are heading big corporates!

    That is the fate of Chinese women - Labourers!

    In India, they decide the destiny!

    They are power brokers in India and not slaves to labour!

    They are not contented to be second class as in China!

    Indian women also head foreign MNCs!

    The gentleman is blaming us for not having a lady as the president. :shocked:
    Men are more reliable than women when dealing with politics, it's generally as simple as that.

    NO.

    A lady awyhere who can decide the Nations politics and economy,

    That you feel that a man is better than a woman shows how stupid you can be.

    Check the lady world leaders and how they have made monkeys of men and Nations.

    See how Hillary Clinton is making a monkey of China.

    Never underestimate women!

    Darwin had said - The female of the species is more dangerous than the male!

    That is a dumb assumption. Even US doesn't have a lady president. Its not about a woman president but about women in powerful positions that behoves their dignity and a sign of a society showing equality and social progress.

    In India you will find women as president of political parties, as chief ministers, as ministers, as head of companies and as head of institutes. Though their participation is not as good as I would like to have but definitely things are progressing in the right direction. A progress of country can be measured by the participation of women at all levels not just as laborers in factories.

    How the women at top become about slave children. Stick to the topic.

    If you don't having anything to say about how 'Women at Top' in China is not happening then don't say it but don't make this off-topic. Its perhaps you have no defence that you have to come with these typical off-topic posts. Accept that China is a male dominated society with no opportunities for women at top position in politics.

    More off-topic posts will bring infractions on you.

    As usual Chinese way of approaching issues.

    Obfuscate and deflect.

    It is agreed that you have no idea of English, but the topic is No Women at the Top in China

    To help you let me give a rough translation:

    没有一个妇女在china!顶部


    Don't be Ping Pong!

    Or be a ding bat!

    Mr. Obama and Ms. Clinton are not good examples when serious politicians are referred to, at least not that qualified in Chinese people's mind. There lies a systematic distinction between US and China when their future leaderships are formed. A man or woman who has very limited experience in both basic civil level politics and higher international level politics will have no chance to be suddenly promoted as the head of China nowadays, and those special cases happened in Mao's late years all failed quickly in the end. But this is still OK to the United States because the true power is not held by the goverment itself and the true decision makers, or in another name advisors, are behind the president and his/her fellows.

    Back to the topic, the situation in China is that there are far less women who have interest in participating political games at the very beginning, for most of them they simply don't care that at all. While the promotion procedure here is strictly one leveled up each time, no one can be elected as the president from a mayor in one night. Since the base of pyramid is already smaller than male's, even assumed that females share the same chance in promotion, the female's pyrimid is definitely shorter and the number above certain high level is of course out of the proportion.

    And there are less Political-Right pressure in China, such as balance between Sex or among Races to affect the normal promotion procedure which is mainly based on abilities, relationships and past political records, especially when we are talking about promotions to the key positions in frame work.

    How do you come to that conclusion?

    Are these women bimbos?

    Margaret Thatcher
    As a student, Margaret Thatcher studied chemistry and law. When she became the education minister, she met resistance from student revolutionaries. Margaret Thatcher was the prime minister of United Kingdom for more than eleven years (three terms). She was a conservative whose diplomacy facilitated the breakup of Soviet Union, which helped end the Cold War. She was also a hardcore capitalist, who reduced government spending and was all for deregulation and privatization. She gained popularity when she waged a war against Argentina over the Falkland Islands. During her third term, her tax policy was not liked by many. She also strongly opposed the European Community because she felt it interfered with the UK's sovereignty and would cause problems that came with big government. She had to contend with opposition from the miners' unions and the Irish Republican Army (IRA). She was a great orator and has become one of the most notable, historical figures, as the first woman to lead a political party in any European country.

    Indira Gandhi
    Indira Gandhi was the prime minister of India for three terms (14 years). Jawaharlal Nehru, her father, was the first prime minister of India. Her policy of Garibi Hatao (Abolish Poverty) was instrumental in her victory in the 1971 elections. She won the war against Pakistan, after which she enforced a state of emergency in India. This move made her most unpopular with the Indian masses, and was the reason why she lost the following elections. After coming back into power, Indira Gandhi somehow earned the hatred of Sikhs. She authorized an attack on the Golden Temple, a Sikh place of worship, in Punjab, acting on intelligence information that terrorists were hiding there. In a retaliatory action, her Sikh bodyguards assassinated her.

    Angela Merkel
    Angela Merkel was born on July 17, 1954. She is the current head of the government in Germany. She is the president of the Christian Democratic Union (CDU), since April 10, 2000, and the president of the CDU-CSU grouping, which is an alliance between CDU and its sister party, Christian Social Union of Bavaria. She is also a leader of the coalition of CSU and Social Democratic Party of Germany (SPD). She is also the president of the European Council and chairperson of the G8. Concerning the internal affairs of Germany, she is directly involved in the matters of health policy and energy policy. In 2008, she was number 1 in Forbes magazine's list of 100 most powerful women in the world. She was awarded the Charlemagne Prize in 2008, for her contribution towards betterment of the European Union.

    Benazir Bhutto
    Benazir Bhutto was a politician who presided over the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP), a progressive party in Pakistan. Bhutto was the first female head of a Muslim country. She served as prime minister of Pakistan for two terms. She was a Sindhi and a Shia Muslim. Both her terms ended when she was abruptly removed from power for reasons of corruption. She received a pardon from President Musharraf for her corruption wrongdoings. She was assassinated at a gathering organized by PPP during the 2008 election.

    Rosa Parks
    Rosa Parks was a civil rights leader, who fought for the freedom of the black citizens of United States. In 1955, Parks disobeyed a busman's command to vacate her bus seat to create space for a white passenger. This triggered the 'Montgomery Bus Boycott', a movement against the racial discrimination in buses. The movement led to a decrease in income for the public transport and this caused the law to be changed, making racial segregation illegal. Rosa Parks became an important icon of civil rights protests. She joined hands with Martin Luther King. Rosa Parks got awards from the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) and the United States Congress. She wrote an autobiography titled Rosa Parks: My Story. She died in 2005 at the age of 92.

    What a lame excuse - the Chinese women are not interested in politics.

    Heard of Madam Chiang Kai Shek, the woman behind the man in Power

    or Mao's wife Jiang Qing, who was a part of the Gang of Four and was wanting power?

    This is not necessary because the sentence became a woman, not women.

    Having given all the lists of women as the Head of Govt, it shows the pathetic Chinese mentality that men are only fit and women are not as was mentioned by one Chinese around here!

    And then they run helter skelter like scullery rats (metaphorically) running for cover with inane bleats that Chinese women are not interested in politics or like that wonderman who is adept in obfuscating and deflecting like a harried God's Gift to neurological aspects of the cranium, wasting everyone's time and bandwidth.

    Another one of the Chinese wonders.

    English is too obscure for him to understand the topic.

    Total decadence in modern thinking.

    Stereotyped and archaic!

    Still being enamoured thinking of the past of pigtails and bound feet!
