Record number of women leaders worldwide

31 Oct, 2017

There are now a total of 22 women presidents and prime ministers - more than at any other time. However, the level of women in the most senior roles worldwide is still tiny. Less than 2% of the 193 countries who are members of the UN are led by women, and this overall level is proving very difficult to change. There are, in October 2017, just 4 more women on this list than there were in March.
