In memory to Václav Havel

Our sphere seems too masculine to me. And especially the political sphere. We don’t have enough women in the parliament, we don’t have any lady in the government, and this is what bothers me. After all, feminine sensibility is different, it brings refinement into politics, a sense of detail, for an individual human destiny. They think less in terms of global, macropolitical, or macroeconomic categories. When I travel on business, I always make sure there are women in my team, so that we’re not just a bunch of men.
