Spain: Women outnumber men in the new cabinet

  • 11 out of 17 cabinet posts have been given to women by Spain's socialist Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez. This proportion is higher than anywhere else in Europe. Ex-astronaut Pedro Duque has been appointed as the science minister. Many important portfolios including defense, education, finance, and economy have been given to women ministers. The cabinet of Spain is regarded as a “feminist cabinet” by several people.
