Given the current trend in the world towards female leaders and more women in politics in general, why exactly are the chances of a woman head of govt still so remote in this state?

Even our current Tanaiste isn't being touted in any serious way, desipite holding one of the highest offices in the land.

Maybe we could do with a woman's touch in the Dail after 90 years of chauvanism.

think Frances Fitzgerald* ( or Coveney) is more likely to be the next Taosieach rather Varadkar

*if we're to continue the chairman type Taoiseach Kenny and Cowen were

Does it matter who? or will just any female do?

She really doesn't inspire any sort of confidence, is poor when challenged and seems to be dependent on a prior agreed upon script in interviews.

So she might very well get it seeing as she is so similar to Enda.

The only thing I look for in a leader is if they can write their name in the snow! I mean that is all that really matters!

I suppose it is bound to happen some day - though noone automatically springs to mind or inspires confidence
