For starters, I am assuming that you are an intelligent/bright/educated/wise/ enlightened lady. You wouldn't have gotten here if otherwise!

I am sure that you know that ladies fought for the right to vote and hold political office (full suffrage rights). In most countries these rights started trickling in in the late 1800 and early 1900.

Unfortunately, the more things change, the more they remain the same! Picture this: before 1906, men voted for men, therefore, all elective seats were held by men. After 1906 ladies and men continued voting for men and, therefore, elective positions continue to be dominated by men (even in the US of A)!

This is mainly due to the fact that some ladies believe that ‘leaders’ is a Greek word meaning ‘men’. This, in effect, means that they can't vote for lady candidates, thereby exposing ladies to the indignity of having to beg for a third of elective seats!

This project Queensville 2012 MDG3's aim is to turn ladies into real Queens who WIN half (1/2) of all the elective positions ( MPs, Governors, Senators) in 2012, with pride and dignity! This will, in effect, create a GENDER FOUNTAIN from which gender equity will flow to the rest of the society through Gender Friendly legislation.

How can you help? Three ways:
1) Vote ONLY for lady candidates in 2012 general elections for the above posts.
2) Tell all your lady acquaintances (friends and enemies) to vote ONLY for lady candidates.

By the bye,Voting for a lady is one of the most powerful ways of convincing your daughter that she is( and ladies in general are)STRONG and capable of being LEADERS!

In the unlikely event that we don't end up with about 50% representation of ladies in elective positions, I will be the first person to advocate for the ladies to be denied the right to vote and hold office! After all men do not require ladies' votes in order to vote for men!!


Australia goes to the polls soon. The ladies in Australia happen to enjoy full suffrage rights since 1890s. However, this right has been much abused such that apart from the Premiership, Australian women have nothing to show for their suffrage rights as far as gender composition of elected bodies is concerned.

In fact, the fact of Australia having a lady Prime Minister seems pretty much a function of default rather than design.

Given that Ladies make up more or less half the number of registered voters in Australia, the prevailing gender representation in elective positions is untenable. It's time the number of elected female leaders reflected the gender balance of the registered voters.

This can be done by ladies voting only for lady candidates in elections...unless, of course, LADY LEADER is an oxymoron!

In the likely event of this not happening and the gender imbalances remain, then I think it's time Australian ladies forfeited their suffrage rights and left men to lord over them. After all, men do not need the input of women to elect men!

Senators, Governors 2012

Kenyans are a funny lot. They vote for a new constitutional dispensation and then they refuse to change in line with the new constitution! The new constitution is “a new wineskin” but the attitude of most Kenyans is still in the old constitution mode.

This essentially means that we are putting old wine (Kenyans and their mentality) into a new wineskin (a new constitutional dispensation), and hopping the wine will mature with age or something...

If you listen to most Kenyans' potential candidates for the seats of Governors and Senators, you will get the following qualifications: Male, old( double retired) monied! The more things change the more the remain the same...

Male is a term normally interchangeable with leadership in many Kenyans Mind irrespective of Gender.

Old is normally confused with appropriate experience and wisdom

Money is a crucial ingredient in politics as Kenyans are generally corrupt and one needs lots of money to bribe them to vote for you.

By the bye, if you even dream of not voting for ladies in the above positions in 2012, I'll just quote a certain gentleman for you “basi, wewe ni kubaff, m...”! Alternatively, I'll just assume you are corrupt (sugar, shuka...) and report you to one prof.PLO...
