  • Vigdís Finnbogadóttir , just Google it.

    On 01 August 1980, Icelandic born Vigdís Finnbogadóttir was the first female to be elected president and served 4 consecutive terms (16 years) as the 4th President of Iceland. Her presidency accentuated environmental causes and the protection of children and youths including the preservation of the Icelandic mother-tongue. While her career as a president was demanding and time consuming, she managed to get several honors and be the first divorced, single woman to adopt a child. This may not seem like a big deal today but in 1980, it was an farfetched lifestyle. Her grace and true-caring nature is what kept her in the running for presidency and makes her an inspiration to other female candidates.

  • 44 guys, 0 gals....

    Women need to step up more to gender stereotypes! Basic biology and religion are the seed of sexism. Society is still stuck in the 50's. Sexist men need to stop judging women based on physical weakness! Some men don't have the "balls" to listen to women! If more women were presidents, there will be lesser wars! Women give life, Men destroy it!

  • I don't think there is enough information for that

    This is an interesting debate question because it may be a tough one to get information on. I guess it may be hard to tell until there is a woman president in this country. It's may be hard to tell how their work will be received and how the public will respond to it.
