Well, I'm surprised this didn't happen earlier. Surprisingly, Indian women were fighting for equal right hundreds of years ago, from what I have been taught. In India, a female Goddess, whose name I can't remember, slayed an evil God trying to overthrow the Indian Pantheon who no male God could slay.
And according to a Professor I had Indian women used this Goddess's story to promote equal rights. In that a woman can do things a man cannot and needed to be treated equal. It didn't pan out very well, but they fought for it. So, yeah, I'm happy when any female is elected to leadership of a country. I just don't like the candidate we have running at the moment. But, if a female candidate I liked and agreed with came along and ran for President, I wouldn't have a problem voting for her.
