FEMINISTS were delighted by Justin Trudeau’s response when he was asked, shortly after becoming Canada’s prime minister, why half the members of his cabinet were female. “Because it’s 2015,” he said. Three years on, not many countries have followed his lead. In France last year, Emmanuel Macron named a cabinet in which half of the 22 cabinet posts went to women. Most other governments, however, remain largely male.

Spain’s new leader, Pedro Sánchez, has unveiled a strikingly female cabinet, with 11 women out of 18 ministers, the highest share in the EU. But Europe still has a way to go: Hungary’s cabinet has a grand total of one woman.
