For the first time in 11 years, all three branches of New Zealand government are led by women.
Newly-elected Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern is now the youngest female world leader and completes the all-female leadership line-up, including Chief Justice Dame Sian Elias and Governor-General Dame Patsy Reddy.
The last time the top three political positions in the country were all held by women was in 2006. This was when former Prime Minister Helen Clark held the top job.
However, Ms Ardern has already expressed her disappointment that only seven out of the 20 cabinet positions in the Labour-led government were women.
Women only make up 31 per cent of MP’s, and the previous National government had seven female cabinet ministers.
