Barack Obama: „Wenn jedes Land von Frauen regiert werden würde, dann würden wir große Verbesserungen sehen“

Von Obama kommt interessantes:

Former President Barack Obama spoke at a private leadership event in Singapore and shared a powerful message praising women.

At a leadership event in Singapore on Monday, the former president posited what the world would look like with a woman at the helm, according to the BBC.

„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],“ Obama said.

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

After completing his two terms in office, Obama has continued his work with his nonprofit foundation that seeks to „inspire people to take action, empower them to change their world for the better, and connect them so they can achieve more together.“

When asked about a potential return to political leadership, Obama said that he believes leaders should step aside when the time comes, the BBC reported.

„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,“ the former president 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 in order to prop up your own sense of self importance or your own power,“ he added.

The former first lady, Michelle Obama, was also visiting the region and spoke to female students at Cần Giuộc high school in southern Vietnam „to support projects that empower girls through education,“ she said in a tweet.

Begründet hat er es nicht und er schien als er gegen Hillary Clinton angetreten ist, noch durchaus der Auffassung zu sein, dass er der bessere Präsident ist und sie keineswegs die Welt besser machen würde.

Wäre interessant ob er es einfach als Gefälligkeit sagt, weil es eben auf einer solchen Veranstaltung gut ankommt oder nur seine Tochter für ein politisches Amt stärken will oder es eben tatsächlich glaubt (so naiv ist er aber aus meiner Sicht nicht).
