Who runs the world? Men or women?

The saying goes that behind every successful man is a woman. Is that really true? How many women presidents are there in the world? How many heads of corporations are women? Do women really have any say in running the world? What do you say?

This argument stems from the the overwhelming influence wives can have on their husband's decision making. Its a fact that some wives run the show in proxy. Are men secretly afraid of the womenfolk who are, clearly, much more intelligent?

In Africa and many other societies, a women's position is considered to be behind the man. The result is that a lot many articulate and leadership oriented women find themselves relegated to the background. Outspoken ladies are frowned upon as disrespectful. The man wants to maintain his respect among his peers even though all the ideas come from the, perhaps more intelligent, spouse. At least in this example, which does occur numerously, the women run the show.

All these apart, its been known that women naturally can, if they so wish, influence a man using their God given "talents". Low as this seems, we cannot deny it happens everyday around us. How many women climbed the corporate ladder using "what they have"? Is that not being in control? History is full of leaders who let "bedroom talk" sway their opinions in matters of parliament.

More from history and the Bible? Queen Cleopatra kept Egypt's enemies at bay with her charms as a woman. Delilah brought Samson down to a crashing reality despite his brute strength. David sacrificed his relationship with God for the sake of a woman after just one glimpse from his balcony.

You are right, this article might be one sided and in support of women. What will you say in defence of men? Women do run the world even though they let the men think they do. Women can sway decisions and policies if they so wish.

If women run the world, I have these questions for them:

  1. Why do you use "dirty techniques" as the writer clearly agrees. Why cant you play fair and "climb the corporate ladder" by merit? Do you call cheating a fair competition?
  2. The article clearly agrees that women resort to desperate measures including pawning their bodies to get what they want. How low is that?
  3. Ever wondered if men deliberately let you think they are controlled by your "talents"?
