I really wanted Segolene Royal to win. It would be awesome to have a woman president, especially in the extremely sexist France.There was a great article in MS. this last issue about Segolene and I actually thought she may win. It is a shame.

It would have been great for Segolene Royal to win!

How big a factor do you believe it was that she is a woman?

I can't see people here voting for a black or a woman either. It doesn't matter how much money they have or how many people admire either of them, it is my fear the voters will not put either of them in office.

Is what happened in France a warning to us?

I think the fact that she is a woman was a HUGE factor in the fact that she wasn't able to win (I haven't checked voting this am, so forgive me if she came from behind and did win). I'll pull out my MS and give you some excerpts. Anyhow, France is a very, very patriarchal society. Consider that they have been around centuries longer than the US and were ruled by kings for a very long time...men believe it is their right to have power. She would have been so good for their country.

Here is a phone survey taken on the election day:
http://www.ipsos.fr/presidentielle-2007 ... 2eTour.pdf

Take a look at page 3.

54% of men have voted for Sarkosy yes, but also 52% of women have voted for him too!!! Take a look also on percentage of voters by sex/age/occupation groups. Draw your own conclusions…
