In Good Company

posted April 24th, 2008 by Janet Graham - Leave a Comment

Last week Spanish Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero named his country’s first majority female cabinet, with nine of seventeen ministries headed by women. This includes a seven months pregnant Defence Minister, 37 year old Carme Chacon. She was the government’s former minister for housing and is a constitutional law professor who studied in Montreal and Toronto and is expecting her first child.

Mr. Zapatero has proudly referred to himself as a feminist which accounts for my subject heading “In Good Company” because I proudly declared the same in a prior post.
