Just seven women are currently serving among the Obama administration’s 23 cabinet-level jobs, and only 45 women have held such spots in the history of the country.

There are dozens of jobs in D.C. that have never been held by a woman. Here are just a few:
- Director of Office of National Drug Control Policy: There have been six male “drug czars” since the office was created in 1989, as if women can’t be enforcers.
- Secretary of Defense: 0 for 24
- White House Chief of Staff: Only on West Wing has a woman been the president’s gatekeeper
And of course Vice-President and President.
