Can you imagine if there was a Putina in charge of Russia? At a minimum there would be less overt posturing by that regime.

Margaret Thatcher, Marjorie Green, Georgia Milano, Marine LePen, etc., etc. Yeah, I wouldn't count on it. An embarrassingly simplistic world view.

How many irresponsible wars did they start though? Georgia Milano is actually looking to be one of the adults of Europe.

Shame on the person I was copying for that.

If women ran the world there would be no more war.

Instead nations would tease each other so we all developed eating disorders.

A living proof is ambasador Sora Aoi, the beacon of Japanese-Chinese friendhip

Does that mean more woman will automatically lead to peace in the world? Not necessarily, what it actually means that open door of opportunities to future leader despite their gender. So people will be assessed by their work result not by their age, like happening in Japan.

can’t quite understand how genitalia will bring about world peace.

I acknowledge the longevity of Yoko Kamikawa's political service and her determination to improve gender and diplomatic activities, especially those undertaken by women worldwide.

I strongly believe that if more women were leaders of such countries as Russia, China, NK, all of the Middle East, Pakistan, and all other uncivilised barbaric places, then there would be far less (and in certain circumstances) no violence, no inter-border disputes and no terrible wars.

It is the sheer unadulterated stupidity of men and their deranged dispositions to want to take by force the lands or territories of others, for what ??

Men's blinkered view of harmonious cordiality, and their total disregard for the sanctity of every single person's human-right to a peaceful existence on this planet, will eventually be realised as the basis of the destructive and repressive forces which more than half of the world's population endures.

It's about not having anything to prove in terms of looking strong. Unfortunately men always have to show strength. You could argue it isn't men's fault that this is so.

Thatcher and Golda Meir both started wars of choice.

Yeah right. Go take a look at Kim Yo Jong. Please.

Who?

Actually she's right. It's been proven by many scientific studies that women (and females in general) resort far less than male counterparts to aggressive (attacking) physical violence. They're also quicker sometime to resort to protective violence (of a child for example). This would lead to less wars and a more peaceful society. Thing is, even in "civilised" countries having women in charge of these matters is extremely far from the reality. Nevermind countries where women are actually given lesser rights than men.

It seems that being a woman with high levels of intelligence, competency and a will to make things better in anyway she can doesn’t trump the need to tear her down from our cynical resentful friends here on JT now does it?

The mindset is all encompassing. You have to wonder where the need to stick the knife into highly successful and influential people, at any given chance, comes from don’t you? It’s not hard to draw conclusions from where either.

I think it was a very plain and simple statement from Kamikawasan that held a self evident and positive message. Heaven forbid!

Role modelling all she wants, pitchforks just keep goin up cus her good ol big pant boys

"Japan foreign minister says women's involvement key to peace efforts."

That's true but not "everyone woman" involvement is the key but "women of faith" are capable of bringing peace even in the most hostile environment.

I don't know about that. Kimmy's sister looks like she is up to no good in that WPK regime.

Good idea, conflicts always have two sides to the story, so reasonable ethical compromise and logic a must, not the insane eons of stupidity of the emotional Mid-East!

Women tend to prefer conflict to end sooner rather than later = Good, you go Kamikawa San!

Women are yet to do justice to their enormous potential in spreading peace and concord on Planet Earth our common home. "If by strength is meant moral power, then woman is immeasurably man's superior" - Mahatma Gandhi.
