god: heres two brilliant women to choose from

Jess Phillips in leadership in politics:
“People still think that the man in a suit who can make a hard-hitting speech [is leadership material]. If a man in a suit stands up and makes a hard-hitting speech, people go, ‘he’s got leadership’. If a woman stands up and makes an amazing speech and is a brilliant orator, and is an amazing member of parliament, people say, ‘well, maybe, one day… when people think of people who rule us, they still think of a white man in a suit.”

Exactly this. Patriarchy writ large.
