What's missing here?
As South Korea inaugurates its first woman president today, this may be a good time to look at China's incoming Politburo Standing Committee and observe what's missing from it. All seven members are drawn from the 696,340,752 Chinese with a penis (give or take the odd eunuch). Not one of them is drawn from the 644,994,400 Chinese with a vagina. (2010 figures)
Fact 1: China's constitution guarantees sexual equality.
Fact 2: China has one of the worst gender imbalances in the world.
