Abstract

This article attempts to answer the question: why are women not often at the head of nations? We test the probability of occurrence of female leaders at the head of the country using data from ARCHIGOS data set of Goemans et al. (2009). Our hypothesis is that the occurrence of female leaders as head of government is also determined by culture. This hypothesis is validated empirically. Hence, we tested the strength of this relationship, which proved to be highly robust.
