So much for machismo. Re-elected Spanish Prime Minister José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero announced a new government this weekend, with a surprise twist: His new cabinet boasts more women than men. The eight men and nine ministras include a pregnant woman who will head the army as defense minister, the Independent reports.
Zapatero also introduced a new cabinet position: an equality ministry, which will be headed by a 31-year-old woman—the youngest minister since Spain returned to democracy. Not everyone is impressed. One right-wing commentator blasted the female-dominated Zapatero government as a "battalion of inexperienced seamstresses."
