It could not understand why women emotions are used as basis to deny them leadership roles, whiles anger and other emotional traits of the male counterparts are overlooked.

The systemic barriers hindering women trying to occupied leadership position it noted, need to be address by institutions and government through implementable actions but not mere words.
