World Spain Gender Europe may now have its own Justin Trudeau. When the Canadian Prime Minister was asked why he chose to appoint a cabinet that was exactly 50 percent female, the young and dashing new leader famously quipped, “Because it’s 2015.” Pundits have debated ever since whether this was a staged PR statement or a spontaneous expression of Trudeau’s firm belief in gender equality.
