Hillary Clinton is Not Making History - 17 Women Who Already Did
The US election is currently being touted as a sign that women can break the glass ceiling, however women have already broken that glass ceiling in 44 different countries around the world.
If Hillary Clinton is elected President of the United States it will be history made in the United States of America and not the world at large. Throughout its 240 year history, the United States has been ruled by men. Clinton hopes to change that - but other countries got there first.

Helle Thorning-Schmidt, Prime Minister of Denmark
