How the World Rates Women as Leaders

Juliana Menasce Horowitz, Research Associate at the
Pew Global Attitudes Project, surveyed male and
female citizens of 46 countries and the Palestinian
territories on their opinions regarding women and
political leadership.

A summary of the study (on the Pew Research Center
web site) reveals which regions' and countries'
publics rate men and women as equally good political leaders,
which believe men are better political leaders and
which prefer women as leaders.
