It is interesting that many countries in South East Asia have recently had a female president or prime minister, such as Indonesia, South Korea and Thailand. And it sometimes seems that this could never happen in China. It is a society that has been dominated by males. Look at the history. There was only once that a female Emperor, Wu Zse-tien, dominated the whole nation, back in 690. And she was not a bad one.
