“Star Wars” star Mark Hamill declared Tuesday that it’s time to stop electing men to leadership roles in government.

The liberal actor, best known for his role as Luke Skywalker in the “Star Wars” franchise, told his nearly 3 million Twitter followers that he’s ready to let women “take charge completely.”

“For centuries, men have had their chance to rule government with middling-to-poor results,” Mr. Hamill wrote.

“Who’s ready to let women take charge completely? Just women. I know I am,” he said.

Mr. Hamill wrote the tweet in response to a photo showing six new female members of Congress, including Democratic Rep.-elects Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar and Ayanna Pressley.
