This image is part of a summary of women in politics worldwide (via Jezebel).  Each country in dark pink has had a woman as a full-term head of state, and each in light pink has had a woman as the acting head of state.  This would be a useful image to show when discussing whether or not the U.S. is, in fact, the most progressive and gender egalitarian country in the world (as so many people in the U.S. are inclined to believe).

Remember, a Palin vice presidency would be “making history” only if we ignore the rest of the world.
