WEDO’s groundbreaking research on women in national cabinets makes its debut in this factsheet that highlights where women serve in governmental cabinets. What is clear is that gender inequality remains in even Cabinet-level political posts.

As part of its 50/50 Campaign to increase women’s participation in government, WEDO reviewed women’s representation in national cabinets in 188 countries. The campaign, which was launched in 2000, has focused primarily on women in national parliaments and other major decision-making bodies.
