Women make better politicians than men because they are not prisoners to their libido and testosterone. Who says so - Brian Cowen, Eamonn Gilmore, Enda Kenny? No, it's Christine Lagarde, France's finance minister. Minister Lagarde's right hand man is an Irish woman. Sonia Criseo.
Women make better politicians than men, claims French finance minister - TelegraphMrs Lagarde, said that her 30-year career as a high-flying lawyer and the world's most powerful female finance minister left her convinced that men's sex drive, testosterone and ego made them prone to taking decisions personally and humiliating people.
Most women in power, on the other hand, were less ruled by their libido and thus able to make more cool-headed judgments, she said.
"Women inject less libido and less testosterone into the equation.
"It helps in the sense that we don't necessarily project our own egos into cutting a deal, making our point across, convincing people, reducing them to a partner that has lost in the process,"
Is she wrong?
