To those of you who believe it is prima facae beneficial to have women (or any other non-white male group) in elected office, I ask the following:

Should this be mandated by law?

For example, if a city council has only 5 members. Would you support a law that demands at least two of these members be female, and two be male?
This would be to the point that if there are only two females on the council, and only they are up for reelection, then ONLY females can run.
This could also result in a run-off style voting system, to ensure that the appropriate diversity is met.

If you are the type of person who laments that only 13% of congress are females, would you support this proposal?
If not, why not?
