Women dominate Spanish cabinet

BBC NEWS | Europe | Women dominate Spanish cabinet: "Spain's Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero has unveiled his new cabinet, which for the first time includes more women than men.

The former housing minister, Carme Chacon, one of the rising stars of Spain's Socialist party, becomes its first ever female defence minister."

Nine of the ministers are women, and eight are men; when the prime minister is included, the cabinet is equally divided by gender.
