Only seven percent of respondents think a woman can deal with the Iranian nuclear threat, according to a poll carried out for the Women’s International Zionist Organization (WIZO).
The survey was conducted as part of WIZO’s campaign to encourage the participation of women in politics, but the results were negative for a woman to deal with Iran as long as it strives to build a nuclear weapon.
However, the poll showed that women as political leaders have a positive influence on the public, although less so in the areas of economics and defense.
The results imply that the public would not trust Labor leader Knesset Member Shelly Yechimovich or Tzipi Livni, running under a new party bearing her own name, to head the defense or finance ministries.

6. The differences were far greater than that
Demographically, philosophically, where the political center was.
The fact that a woman was PM was a major effect of the above.

4. I know! I don't know what the age makeup of their population is.
I have read so may disheartening stories today that show how far women still have to go. It is maddening.
