Poll: Islamic women liked as leaders
Even in Islamic countries, It's realized that Women make great leaders.

Poll: Islamic women liked as leaders
http://www.upi.com/NewsTrack/view.php?StoryID=20060330-...

PRINCETON, N.J., March 30 (UPI) -- The majority of respondents in all but one of eight mostly Islamic countries surveyed in a Gallup Poll agree women should have leadership roles.

The majority range was wide, from 54 percent in Egypt to 92 percent in Lebanon. Only Saudi Arabia, with 40-percent approval, fell below the 50-percent mark.

Other countries included Turkey at 86 percent; Iran 78; Morocco 74; Pakistan 58; and Jordon 55. Overall, about nine out of 10 of those asked in Lebanon and Turkey agreed that women should be allowed in leadership positions.

Gallup World Poll surveys were conducted in eight countries between August and October last year asked respondents to agree or disagree on the supposition that "Women should be allowed to hold leadership positions in the Cabinet and national council."




I wonder what the numbers would be for the same poll in The U.S. ?

Peace.

1. It would be interesting to compare numbers
in the US with the numbers given here. Having been given the name Ayesha, I know a bit about how women in Islam have been and continue to be leaders.
