If I ruled the world

Women would be on top

If I ruled the world my first edict would be to give women total control of planet Earth. What with the state of the Middle, sorry, the Muddle East, melting polar caps, geographical kleptomaniacs like rootin’, tootin’, shootin’ Putin, on-going financial meltdown fuelled by testosteroneaddled bankers, Brexit and Trump trumpeting racism, we girls can’t possibly do a worse job than the blokes. And let’s face it, women who’ve given birth are better equipped to deal with the vicissitudes of life—after all, we’ve been stitched up and experienced acute pain. If what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, then mothers are made of titanium so could easily take on the task of running the world. I’m sure we’d have most of the planet’s problems solved in a few hours. Certainly by the cocktail hour anyway.

About Prospect Magazine

In Prospect’s August issue: Rachel Sylvester argues that the EU referendum has started a re-alignment of British politics while Roger Scruton and Jay Elwes say that it has thrown Britain into a bout of self-examination with the fundamental question of who we are as a nation at its centre. In addition, Peter Mandelson says without reform the EU could fall victim to a populist uprising. Also in this issue: Philip Ball explores quantum entanglement, George Magnus looks at the political situation in Brazil ahead of the Olympics and Adam Mars-Jones unpicks the work of Steven Spielberg. James Cusick looks at the impact of the Chilcot report and Kathy Lette explains what the world would be like if she was in charge.
