    People freaked out when the US elected Bush again in 2004, they waited and got Obama and then Trump. So logically your next president will be like Obama and but they fear who may follow him.

    For example, New Zealand has 4.7 million population and 120 representatives or 1 member per 39,166 people. America has 325.7 million population and 435 representatives or 1 member per 748,735 people. For America to have the same level as New Zealand they would need to expand Congress to a total of 8,315.

    If you don't have 50/50 then how do you make it happen? As you can clearly see with my last post women make up the majority of people in 41/50 states - therefore I would expect they would also be a majority of voters. Why aren't the majority of voters voting for more women in power? one answer could be that there is not enough women stepping forward but that is hardly anyone's fault.

    Okay, but how would that work in practice? For example only 9 out of the 50 states have more males than females. A fair way of doing this could be to say 1 male and 1 female per state but this would be unfair to the majority of female-dominated states that would be underrepresented.

    They might be but hearing from one side that women need to be given special treatment for positions at the top regardless of ability. This doesn't mean that it is happening but the concept remains in peoples mind's regardless.

    [–] Star Wars: Women of the Galaxy Book Announced Xorism 6 points ago in KotakuInAction

    My thinking was she seems to fight with emotion and anger (but I could be wrong) - would be fitting if she had joined the dark side at the end of EP7, with Ren relishing it until she exceeds him and Snoke drops him for her. This causes Ren to spend the rest of EP8 soul searching before finding something from his parents that tip him over to the light side setting him up for Ep9 to fight the Snoke/Rei combo with Luke.
