That would all consolidate depending on the nation involved, the answer may involve culture norms, religious beliefs, economic demands, educational opportunities, and a host of other factors that are part of a country's history, apart from the explicit mechanics of its electoral process. In order for women leaders to eradicate corruption, the first step for women leaders in seeking full representation shall be to analyse their own specific barriers to greater power to challenge corruption at all levels, sommencing with grass root level.Such examination in turn requires a more vritical approach to the dichotomies that dominate conceptualisations of human leadership. Key factors that can encouarge women leaders to steer clear off corruption: her particular qualities as a human being -- asserting her values of tolerance, pluralism, and human concern, her ability to control 'power' to best advantage for the nation she represents, and by resisting foreig policies that are based on corruptive measures. Same principle would apply if the woman leader was other than politician. Many NGO's have assidiously suffered corruption at the hands of their leaders, such atrocities should be investigated and a new paradigm needs to develop. Women leaders can make a difference. I am hopeful, for I am a woman, a social-political activist living for justice of those who have been silenced -- precisely by corruption.
