WHM--International Women's Day: Female Heads of State

Today, March 8, is the 99th annual International Women's Day.  

International Women's Day has been observed since 1909, and was created amidst a global hotbed of activity by and for women. We celebrate by getting to know our first female Heads of State. This list is not exhaustive, and does not account for many female firsts that were appointed but never elected, and others may have been overlooked. Feel free to educate me in the comments, as that what this month-long celebration of women is all about!

I should probably wait to post this until the morning, but it's ready and I'm still up, and a lot of hard work went into this. Don't forget to hit the rec button if you like this diary. Thanks.
