the only reason they are not in more power is because women in western civilisation have only been recognised as equals in modern times and have only been allowed take part in elections etc.
i think that men being more agressive than women is beside the point because both sexes have different attributes that can help them lead, and make them good leaders.
the only reason they were like that in neanderthall times was because women are physically weaker, they were put down. but because of someones physical strenght, or lack of, it does not make them any less capable of being leaders.
