#education #reference



Undergraduate humanities may not be in quite the sorry shape that pundits like David Brooks seem to believe. But it’s true that at certain institutions, enrollments have dipped lately. At Yale, for instance, English and History have lost ground over the past ten years to economics and political science. 

Well of course! you might say. The economy’s eating twenty-two-year-olds for lunch, and undergrads want jobs. But here’s the funny part: humanities students aren’t actually faring that terribly on the market.

Female World Leaders - Which countries have had female heads of government or state so far? 
This map gives a neat overview. South America, South Asia, South East Asia and Northern Europe stand out as remarkable regions. But it is also worth noting that e.g. Muslim countries have had female heads of state, when the supposedly gender equal, post-feminist US has not. 
Legend
Light Pink - acting heads of government or state (any point in modern history)
Dark Pink - full-term heads of government or state (any point in modern history)
