President Jimmy Carter was asked the question: "Do you believe that the country is ready for a woman president? " He responded...
"Oh yes, I think so! I think the country sees that we have had women presidents in the largest democracies in the world -- India, which I visited lately -- also the largest Muslim country in the world has had a woman president -- Indonesia. One of our greatest democratic friends, Great Britain, had a woman prime minister for many years. In this hemisphere we now have a woman elected president of Chile, and in Nicaragua a woman president replaced the Sandinistas. Women have served in top positions of leadership in countries around the world. We just had a woman elected in an election we monitored in West Africa -- the first woman elected president in Liberia, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf. And so in answer to your question, I think the United States is at least as enlightened about discrimination against women as Nicaragua or Chile or India or other countries."
