Women over Men

The Dalai Lama spoke at a conference on Women Buddhism at the University of Hamburg in 2007:

“Warfare has traditionally been carried out primarily by men since they seem better physically equipped for aggressive behavior. Women on the other hand, tend to be more caring and sensitive to others’ discomfort and pain. Although men and women have the same potentials for aggression and warm-heartedness, they differ in which of the two more easily manifest. Thus if majority of world leaders were women, perhaps there would be less danger  of war and more cooperation on the basis of global concern – although, of course, some women can be difficult! I sympathize with feminists, but they must not merely shout.  They must exert efforts to make positive contributions to society.”
