In his article on women in politics and the response they are likely to get, Ray Fisman points out a truly relevent aspect of life for women in the world today. Hillary Clinton could be the next US president so this writer uses a study conducted in India, where the law provides opportunities for women in village politics, to show the likely result. The conclusion is that while Hillary may be pretty competant she will not be properly appreciated. According to the study women pay a lot of attention to social services and get little recognition for their work. In retrospect, we can see this in our very own workplaces where we can view the treatment of women who work with us. Apart from the usual penchant for sexist exchanges, how well do we appreciate their presence ? Unless they do something for us, are they not just an attractive addition ? The exceptional women of history were only long-lasting through longevity, like Queen Victoria. In an elected situation, this might not happen. In India nearly all the elected women failed to be re-elected. So Hillary may very well be good at her job and last only one term in office. What she would definitely do is pave the way for other women.
