Rwanda announced gender balanced cabinets with 50 percent women
20 October 2018 Current Affairs:

Rwanda, the East African nation, announced gender-balanced Cabinets with 50% women. It said that women now make up half of the slimmed-down, 26-seat Cabinet. A higher number of women in decision-making roles might lead to a decrease in gender discrimination and gender-based crimes.

Inter-Parliamentary Union and UN Women said that Rwanda joins a handful of countries, mostly European, where women make up 50% or more of ministerial positions. The country has received international recognition for female representation in government, with women making up 61% of Parliament.
