According to the former president of the United States, Barack Obama, the world would be better if more women were in power. He said that during a lecture about leadership in Singapore.
“Women are not perfect, but they are undeniably better than men,” he says. Obama also thinks that if every country in the world had a female leader, there would be an increase in living standards.
According to him, most of the world’s problems come because the older generation of politicians, especially men, hold on to the current balance of power.
He himself will not immediately go into politics again. Obama believes that political leaders should step aside in time. “It is important to remember that you are doing a job, but that you will not be there for the rest of your life. You are not there to link your self-worth to power. “
Barack Obama was president of the United States from 2009 to 2017. Since he left the White House, he has been travelling the world for his Obama Foundation organisation. Obama and his wife Michelle try to train young people through that organisation.
At the end of February, Obama addressed a group of young people in Oakland who asked him what his definition of being a man was.
