G20 Summit 2018 : Class photo has fewest female leaders in G20 history.

Friday’s class photo at the G20 included the fewest female heads-of-government than any previous G20 family photo taken since the group began meeting in 2008.

That was due in part to Angela Merkel’s absence (her plane was having issues getting to Argentina). But even had she been there, there would have been only two female country leaders — Merkel and Theresa May — plus IMF chief Christine Lagarde. That would have amounted to the lowest number since 2010.The two years with the highest numbers are 2012 and 2013, which saw 5 female leaders both years.
