It's official

Previously I wondered whether the new Cabinet's 12-8 division between women and men was a world record. None of you layabouts took the time to find out, but luckily Qatar's Gulf Times has got my back:

The new centre-right coalition government is headed by a man, Prime Minister Matti Vanhanen, but 12 of the 20 ministers are women - 60% - a world record according to the Inter-Parliamentary Union.
Thanks, Qatar's Gulf Times!
