Can we please stop with the political pity party? I'm a Canadian woman. Up here Canada is divided into 10 provinces (states). Each year the premiers (akin to governors) have a conference. Last summer, of the 10 premiers in attendance, 6 were women. Those six women represented over 85% of the Canadian population. In 3 of those provinces the opposition leaders were women too. People will vote for women if they can demonstrate they are competent. If a woman isn't elected, then maybe she's isn't.

The article I posted recently (I’m assuming you’re talking about that) is not about elections. It was not about politics either. Maybe read the substance of posts before making remarks. It may make for a better, more productive conversation. 
I’m glad to hear though, that you do not feel there any barriers for you as a woman. We need more woman to have the type of experiences that you feel you’ve had. Good luck in all your endeavors and I hope you make it far and continue to push for a society of equality for all genders, sexes and identities. 

Why Do So Many Incompetent Men Become Leaders?

"The truth of the matter is that pretty much anywhere in the world men tend to think that they that are much smarter than women. Yet arrogance and overconfidence are inversely related to leadership talent — the ability to build and maintain high-performing teams, and to inspire followers to set aside their selfish agendas in order to work for the common interest of the group. Indeed, whether in sports, politics or business, the best leaders are usually humble — and whether through nature or nurture, humility is a much more common feature in women than men.”
