1. Interesting point. However, I think Argentina, Brazil, and Chile have had female presidents.

I can't remember any more, but both Spain and Portugal have had reigning queens. I wonder what the reason could be?

2. English isn't a Romance language

And we haven't had a woman president, even though a woman won.

3. That's why I said 'besides America'

AND I agree Hillary won.

4. Perhaps it's the influence of predominant patriarchal Catholicism in those countries

5. That is a consideration, I truly never thought about that connection.

You could be right...
