We are slowly getting to the point where it is more common to have women in positions of power. We had a woman run for president, even if she didn't win the nomination. Several countries have had women at the helm. It is also more common for women to lead cities, stares and large companies. I think the day for women is coming.

I would say that it is extremely unlikely considering the roles of women in some countries. An example would be in Afghanistan, where women are not even allowed to be out in public without their faces covered.

I don't think the world will trend towards dominance by either gender in terms of government. I think women will have a greater voice and more parity in terms of representation and leadership positions in many countries, but domination seems highly unlikely, given both history and the progress that's been made.

Afghanistan has the second highest maternal mortality rate in the world. Even before the Taliban came to power, Afghanistan had high maternal and child mortality rates and a very low literacy rate for women. But women participated economically, socially and politically in the life of their societies. Women helped to draft the 1964 Constitution. In the 1970s, there were at least three women legislators in the Parliament. Up to the early 1990s, women were teachers, government workers and medical doctors. They worked as professors, lawyers, judges, journalists, writers and poets.

After the Taliban's rise to power, women and girls were systematically discriminated against and marginalized, and their human rights were violated. This resulted in the deteriorating economic and social conditions of women and girls in all areas of the country, in particular in areas under Taliban control.

So, luckily the Taliban (Men) is loseing control. Mabey things will return to the way they were!
