I’m confused. I’m completely supportive of the idea that at least one of the top positions in the EU should be held by a woman – it’s about time it happened! And as Females in Front, the petition I’ve signed, pointedly asks: with 250 million women in Europe surely one is good enough?
But when it comes to petitions to campaign on the issue it seems that one is absolutely not good enough, as I discovered today via Mary Honeyball MEP’s blog – there’s a rival poll with a similar theme at send2women.eu.
Most strange is that the politician most outspoken on this issue – Margot WallstrÃ¶m – is not listed as a supporter of either initiative. What’s going on here?
