The five most-searched female world leaders, according to Google

While Hillary Clinton lost to Donald Trump in the 2016 US presidential election, leaving one of the world’s highest and hardest of glass ceilings intact, 77 women in other countries have been elected president or prime minister in the modern era. Even after attaining office, these women have typically faced challenges their male counterparts did not. Female leaders are frequently subjected to public misogyny, heavy scrutiny of their sartorial choices, and derision for supposedly lacking charisma. Voters still largely do not trust women to lead; a 2016 survey by the World Economic Forum found that only 52 percent of respondents between the ages of 18 and 35 were very comfortable with a woman as president or prime minister.
