Female Heads of State…

Around the world women have gradually and slowly, still rarely but yet been elected to power and been heads of state – from Canada to Barbados and Latvia to Sri Lanka, even in Islamic countries such as Pakistan and Bangladesh, which is why it continues to baffle me that the USA has not had a female president yet. C’mon guys? In the meantime, a small roundup of my favourite heads of state (both past and present) – from female prime ministers to female presidents and female chancellors, there are currently only 17 female heads of state – the highest being only 20 in late 2010.
