This picture from Hangzhou’s G20 Summit conveys an important message on global politics

NEW DELHI: As the G20 Summit in China’s Hangzhou came to an end on Monday, it managed to drive home an important point. The skewed gender representation at the summit, which includes world’s most influential economies is disturbing, to say the least.

Have a look at this picture which was taken at the concluding ceremony of the G20, hosted in China’s Hangzhou this year.

Of the 36 world leaders on the platform, only four are women. This comprises approximately 12% of the lot. According to a report published by the World Economic Forum, women leaders hold only 21.9% of positions in national parliaments worldwide.

The four women leaders at the G20 Summit were: German Chancellor Angela Merkel, UK’s newly-elected Prime Minister Theresa May, South Korean President Park Geun-hye and IMF chief Christine Lagarde.
