I would like to put the exact number of women heads of state into my thesis. I could not find this number anywhere and I was wondering if you can either suggest web sites or organizations that might have an answer to this... Thanks! V.J.B.

Thanks for your note to Feminist.com. To find out the number of women heads of state, I suggest you contact Laura Liswood, who is the Director of the Council of Women World Leaders at Harvard University. She has both a book and a video on this subject. (Her book, Women World Leaders is available at the Feminist.com Bookstore under "International"). I do know that the U.S. ranks 39th out of 160 nations in female representation in government.
