Global Women Leaders

There are very few countries in the world with women leaders at the helm. In India, we have Pratibha Patil in the largely ceremonial role as the President of the State. On the Reuters blog, I found this interesting infographic that details various women political leaders, either in executive or ceremonial roles.

Look at the 2011 names, like Dilma Rousseff (Brazil) and Yingluck Shinawatra (Thailand); they might just make an appearance in one of those GK sections in the SNAPTest / IIFT / IRMA, or any exam with a GK section!
