‘Women are indisputably better than men’ – Read Ex-President, Barrack Obama’s Powerful Speech On Leadership

Former US President, Barack Obama, has said if women ran every country in the world, there would be a general improvement in living standards and outcomes.

Speaking at a private event on leadership in Singapore, he said while women “aren’t perfect”, they are “indisputably” better than men, reports the BBC.

He also spoke about political polarisation and the use of social media to spread falsehoods. Obama further stated that while in office, he had mused what a world run by women would look like.

“Now women, I just want you to know; you are not perfect, but what I can say pretty indisputably is that you’re better than us (men).

“I’m absolutely confident that for two years if every nation on earth was run by women, you would see significant improvement across the board on just about everything… living standards and outcomes.”

When asked if he would ever consider going back into political leadership, he said he believed in leaders stepping aside when the time came. Mr Obama added that most of the problems in the world came from old people, mostly men, holding onto positions of power.

“If you look at the world and look at the problems it’s usually old people, usually old men, not getting out of the way,” he said.

“It is important for political leaders to try and remind themselves that you are there to do a job, but you are not there for life, you are not there to prop up your own sense of self-importance on your own power.”
