Hej! Hallo! Guten Tag! Ladies and Gentlemen! We said hi to the ladies first because, asides from the fact we have gemtlemen of the crew, y’all are taking over. This is not a joking matter at all. Ladies are taking over the World: from Daenerys and Cersei in The Game of Thrones (Season 6) to Theresa May as the new British PM and Hillary Clinton, the US presidential candidate for the Democratic National Party.
In light of this female domination Ms Dang grabs the reigns this week as we talk about how women have stepped up and need to step up more in the march to Female World Domination ;-D.
The guys the Real Dude and Biggdaddy act as her backup singers as we discuss our main leading ladies on the global scene on your world famous Real Talk!
So, let’s ask you: How would having more leading women affect our world? Would it make it a better place? Does it translate to decent, if not great leadership?
Have You Ever…
