Considering what is going on around the world right now, it is hard to dispute this statement.

Former President Obama said at a recent event that he believes women are “indisputably better” leaders than men and confidently predicted that people would see a global improvement if every nation was led by a woman.

According to the BBC, he made the remarks at a leadership event in Singapore during his and former first lady Michelle Obama’s visit to the region last week.

At the event, the former president reportedly said: “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 a significant improvement across the board on just about everything… living standards and outcomes,” he continued.

“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 went on.

“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.

This should come as welcome news to Elizabeth Warren and Amy Klobuchar. 

I really think that now is the time for a woman to win the presidency in America. 

I have been saying that for almost eight years now, and I have seen no reason to change that opinion. 

The misogynists on the conservative side predicted a number of terrible outcomes if Hillary Clinton won in 2016, and all that and more has taken place with Trump in the White House. 

We need the calm leadership of a woman whose every decision it not driven by ego, personal grievances, or testosterone-induced rage.
