    Would the inclusion of more women in positions of power and leadership perhaps lead to better decision making and less corruption in the management of our public domains?

    Why would it?

    Dichotomies are fallacious, other than powerful vs. powerless, that is. Ironically,
    placing the powerless in positions of power would cause the oppressed to turn
    into oppressor.

    Therefore, the only path is anarcho-syndicalism.

    There is reason for optimism when we see women organizing themselves at neighbourhood, village and town level [where I live, for example] so they can take more control over - or at least exert more influence on - the things happening around them and that affect things that they are more inclined to prioritize, like health and education and human rights.

    Might it work for the male-dominated and terminally corrupt and discredited FIFA?

    I doubt it. In a few years all you'd get is a Josephine Blatter of sorts.

    Power corrupts.

    I am sure you're right and that it invariably does but I think the possibility of less corruption ~ any degree of 'less' ~ as opposed to the unassailable male dominated status quo might be worth a try.

    No, I think the problem is we need more blond headed men to run government, you know, like Hitler thought.

    I'd like to think that it is not power that corrupts but rather that power causes corruption.

    Plenty of decent folk would not become corrupt if given power.

    However those seeking power are invariably corrupt.

    It's the old story: the worst people to run a country are politicians.

    No, because they also just behave humanly.

    If women ruled the world, there would be no war.

    Countries would simply not talk to each other.
