Why do you believe that gender equality in politics doesn't exist the US or UK. The US has a 20% representation of women in Congress while the UK has 32%. Is this number representative of opportunity to stand for election or the quality of the female candidates running for election? Is there a legislative limitation on the number of women who can stand for office in either country? You're confusing lack of opportunity with lack of success. The US had an opportunity to elect a female chief executive in 2016 and squandered it by deliberately choosing to run one of the least popular women in American history since Lizzie Borden.
