What If Women Were In Charge?

// Given at WI?02013 on Mar 2, 2013

A quick Google search of the question "What if Women were in charge?" renders many funny pictures of pink Swiss army knives complete with tubes of lipstick and automobile consoles adorned with cosmetic products. In many respects it seems that people find the prospect of women in charge more of a superficial joke than a reality. By examining how public policy might be different if women called the shots. I challenge audience members to not only imagine a world led by women but also to see it as a positive and welcome possibility.
