Still a stronger female representation than the Abbott cabinet.

Actually, this got me curious, so I did some math. By my count, there are nineteen people in Voldemort’s cabinet (in this photo, counting Draco, because if you’re going to make nepotism a policy, I’m going to count your nepotistic interns), and four of them are women, for a 21.05% split - not bad, but not good.
But when you look at the actual US cabinet as it currently stands, there are three women in a total of sixteen positions (the fifteen heads of departments, plus the VP). That’s only 18.75%! The United States government is worse at gender equality than the Dark Lord.
If you expand the search to include cabinet-level positions, it gets less dire. Seven women hold positions out of a potential total of 27, for a 25.93% split. But do we really want to be better than Voldemort on a technicality? 
No, we do not.
(More on which countries have better hiring practices than the most potent force of evil to hit Wizarding Europe since Grindelwald.)

Pax, have I mentioned that I love you recently?
