New Zealand’s prime minister is unmarried, pregnant and going on maternity leave
New Zealand has made a name for itself as a progressive country as regards gender equality and the role of women in public life.
There are so many reasons why New Zealand is considered a progressive country. First, women in New Zealand could vote two decades before American women. Also, the country is on its third female prime minister, and now the current Prime Minister, an unmarried 37-year-old named Jacinda Ardern, is about to give birth. She also intends to take maternity leave after the birth of her child, then she will return to work, while her partner will be a stay-at-home dad and take care of their child.
