As we all know, the US is 85% christian. It once used the full version of a christian sharia (laws derived from the Bible), to go along with many European countries as well, and now the US uses only parts of the christian sharia. However the purpose of this post is about the role of women in the Government systems. Now when dealing with women in the government, you have to deal with men. And this is a violation of the biblical laws: 1 Timothy 2:12-I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man; she must be silent.
Christians are always claiming the status of women in islamic governments. But did you know that the US has only 15% of its women holding seats? (thats good enough for 71st in rankings, behind Pakistan, Uzbekistan, Sudan, UAE, Afghanistan Turkmenistan-see for yourself: http://www.ipu.org/wmn-e/classif.htm).
We know Islam lets women be presidents and take part in any government activity, as our scriptures say. The US on one hand is following the bible, letting only a minority be in the paliament, as the verse Paul wrote says women CANNOT have authority over man, but on the other hand is kind of letting women have authority over men. But more importantly she's teaching men (a man will have to listen to her during conference's, meetings because she still does hold some authority).
