Do women make better leaders?

Voters in Chile, Germany and Liberia have recently elected their

first female heads of state.

Both Michelle Bachelet in Chile and Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf in Liberia face

challenges.

A quarter century of war and misrule in Liberia have left roads in ruins and

left the country without a national phone network and electricity. In Chile,

Ms Bachelet has vowed to close the gap between rich and poor. If you live

in Chile or Liberia, let us know your outlook for your country.
