If you have a society in which men are running things and enforcing male standards of conduct in the public sphere, you can have an occasional woman in high public office and it will not harm the society.

Then he would have been seen as sexy and powerful—like Elena Udrea—instead of being treated like a ridiculous pervert.Karl J. writes:
