Three women in final five for WTO Director General post

Three women in final five for WTO Director General post

The WTO confirmed that three women, two of them from Africa, moved to the second round of selection to become the next director-general of the WTO. The WTO is looking for a new director-general to replace Brazilian Roberto Azevedo, who resigned a year earlier than expected at the end of August. The 25-year-old trade body has never had a female leader and that too from Africa.

I think the reason headlines are made this way is because even today there are many who think that women are incompetent to take up these seats of leadership. But on the other hand, I wonder if the better way would be to not hype this up and normalize women being in these positions? That'll help some idiots realize their thinking is still stuck in the stone ages and won't take away from the many credentials of the women, something which happens in headlines like these. Thoughts?
