Best Answer

In many cultures or societies, women were considered to be inferior. The ability to lead, comprehend, learn, all those things attributed to great leaders were not expected of women - therefore they were not expected to have a contribution toward society/government. Some cultures even today, do not see women as leaders and issues still are being addressed - Middle Eastern countries may be included in this example.
