Women in politics in America have made extraordinary strides to break the glass ceiling barrier and we believe that one day, they will. With that being said, we know that the political world, all over the globe, has many talented and respected female politicians in various positions. Not only that but many of these women also happen to be quite photogenic so we’ve pulled together a list of female politicians who not only do exceedingly well in their jobs but who are also as gorgeous as can be.
Tulsi Gabbard – United States of America
Meet the Democratic Representative from Hawaii, Tulsi Gabbard, who has been the United States Representative for Hawaii’s 2nd congressional district since 2013. Currently, she’s a front runner to become the next Secretary of State. Now wouldn’t that be a vision?
Anna-Maria Galojan – Estonia
We won’t go too in depth here as Galojan is currently a political refugee in London due to the fact that she was caught “embezzling euros through one of her charities, the European Movement Estonia.” You think she’s spending her days offering plumbing services so she doesn’t go crazy from boredom?
Sethrida Geagea – Lebanon
Let’s see here, Sethrida Geagea is a powerful and popular Lebanese politician and MP who received her Bachelor’s degree in Political Science. All of these experiences went on to help her strengthen the Lebanese army in the face of Syrian forces. Not bad for someone who is as equally as gorgeous as she is intelligent.
Alina Kabaeva – Russia
What is it with politicians being Olympic champions first? I mean, Alina Kabaeva actually has 2 Olympic medals, 25 European Championship medals, and over a dozen World Championship medals. And if that wasn’t enough for her, she stepped into the political scene as a representative for the United Russia party. Plus, since February of 2008, Kabaeva has been the Chairman of the National Media Group’s Public Council. And we’re fairly certain she hasn’t had to worry about pest control a day in her life.
Vanja Hadzovic – Serbia
How do we put this lightly, Vanja Hadzovic is considered a controversial politician in Serbia because, well, she’s insanely gorgeous. She’s only 27 and works for the Serbian Foreign Ministry.
Queen Rania – Jordan
We’re very happy to introduce to this list Queen Rania Al-Abdullah, the Queen of Jordan. She is a very popular politician, not just in her country but all over the world as she stands for equality and better rights in things such as health, education, and micro finance reform. We should probably mention that you can follow her heavily on social media such as YouTube, Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. In conclusion, she is also married to King Abdullah bin al-Hussein.
Eunice Olsen – Singapore
Eunice Olsen hails from Singapore and honestly we could talk all day about how gorgeous and generous she really is. Let’s start off by saying that in 2000, she won the Miss Singapore Universe pageant, yeah, we get it. Olsen is also an actress and a TV host, therefore she has no problems hiring someone to sort out replacement windows as we’re sure she’s earned enough. Then in 2004, she was appointed in 2004 as a Nominated Member of Parliament (NMP), hence making her the youngest NMP at just 27. We weren’t joking when we said she’s generous considering she is a champion for people who have disabilities, she’s raising awareness for cervical cancer and AIDS, she’s a fighter for the environment and she works with at risk youth.
Mara Carfagna – Italy
Mara Carfagna used to be television actor and a model who was sought after at every turn, and we totally understand why. She’s impossibly gorgeous and we wish her well in her new political role.
Orly Levy – Israel
Currently, Orly Levy serves as an independent member of the Knesset after she resigned from the Yisrael Beiteinu party just this year. Can you also believe that she’s a mother of four cause she looks amazing. Oh, in case you were wondering, her name means “my light” and we’re fairly certain that she lights up every room she simply walks past.
Nicole Minetti – Italy
Nicole Minetti’s name is often shrouded in scandal, possibly because of her jar dropping good looks? Who knows? All we do know is that she is pretty amazing as in 2010, she was a TV host and served as Regional Councillor in the Italian government.
Eva Kaili – Greece
Long before she started her political career as a parliamentary member, Eva Kaili was an incredible journalist. She actually worked for one of the biggest news channels in all of Greece, Mega Channel. Kaili was known for never backing off a story and bringing even the worst stories to life. Guts, brains, and beauty.
Elizabeth Halseth – United States of America
Elizabeth Halseth was the youngest woman ever to be elected to serve on the Nevada Senate from 2010 to 2012. Back in 2014, she graduated from Corban University with a degree in psychology, no less. We should also mention that Halseth is very well known as she was featured in bikini clad appearance in Maxim. Yup, gorgeous and intelligent.
Angela Gerekou – Greece
Before Angela Gerekou became a national political figure, she actually studied architecture in Rome and acting in London. Not bad! She went on to serve as Deputy Culture and Tourism Minister and Corfu MP of PASOK. As a result of a nasty scandal concerning her husband, she had to resign.
Luciana Leon – Peru
Luciana Leon (Luciana Milagros Leon Romero) comes from a very famous and political family, and this definitely explains why she started spearheading her political career at just 14 years old. Yes, she did go to the University of Lima and yes, she majored in politics.
Michele Bachmann – United States of America
Minnesota congresswoman, Michele Bachmann, may not have the best track record in the polls but she is certainly intelligent. She got her Masters in Tax Law and even served as an attorney for the IRS (Internal Revenue Service). She would resign from this position when she gave birth to her fourth child, although she really doesn’t look like she’s the mother of four!
Ayelet Shaked – Israel
Genetics worked their magic when they crafted Ayelet Shaked! Not only is Shaked an Israeli politician but she’s also a computer engineer, brains and beauty to put it lightly. In the political world, Shaked served the Jewish Home since 2013 and served as the Minister of Justice since 2015.
Bibiana Aido – Spain
Before Aido became a well known Spanish politician, she went to school first. First she got her BA in International Business Administration from the University of Cádiz and then in 2011, she received a Honorary Doctorate from Newcastle Business School. That’s pretty impressive.
Ruby Dhalla – Canada
Oh, Canada! Ruby Dhalla has become something of a legend as she is the FIRST Sikh woman to serve in the House of Commons. Girl power, right?
Yulia Tymoshenko – Ukraine
Yulia Tymoshenko is a fighter who lets nothing get in her way. She fought to become the first woman Prime Minister but unfortunately, she was sentenced to three years in prison for some odd numbered crimes. Many believed, of course, that her imprisonment was highly controversial and a total political hack-job. Don’t fret though because as soon as she was released from jail, she immediately went back into the political ringer.
Julia Bonk – Germany
Julia Bonk was the youngest person to ever start working in the German parliament, as just 18 years of age. She has gone on to make huge strides and is a champion for many women who dream of a career in politics.
Cayetana Alvarez – Spain
Here we have the ever beautiful and very talented “People’s Party” member in Spain, Cayetana Alvarez. When we say Alvarez is talented, we seriously mean it. She graduated with a degree in Modern History from Oxford University (which is one of the most prestigious schools in the world!). She also earned a doctorate, is the author of two published novels and was even named “Young Global Leader” by the World Economic Forum, therefore, she is the true definition of brains and beauty!
Vera Lischka – Austria
Before Vera joined the Social Democratic Party of Austria, she was an Olympic champion. I know, we’re basically cheating by adding her on this list but how could we not?! Almost 20 years ago, back in the 1996 Summer Olympics, Lischka won the 50 meter Breaststroke relay – what have you done in the last 20 years? Maybe we’ll be lucky and she’ll marry Average Joe, the plumber or maybe not.
Huma Abedin – United States of America
Michigan born and bred, Huma Abedin is a rock star. Even though, Abedin has a very long and rich history in American politics, her name is mixed up in the unfortunate scandals surrounding her former husband, Anthony Weiner. Huma Abedin also served as the campaign manager for Presidential Nominee, Hillary Clinton.
Yuri Fujikawa – Japan
Even though Japan keeps a pretty tight lid on their political happenings, it’s safe to say that Yuri Fujikawa is one of their prettiest politicians. We don’t have much to report on what her political standings are, but we do know that she’s isn’t a plumber and she is gorgeous.
Kashmala Tariq – Pakistan
Kashmala Tariq is well known for her career in politics, she is a true champion. Taria attended and graduated from the London School of Economics. Now that’s highly impressive. She also serves on the National Assembly of Pakistan and belongs to the Pakistani Muslim League. Tariq is also a very dedicated human rights activist, she is easily a rising star in the whole of the Middle East.
Emma Kiernan – Ireland
Ever since Emma Kiernan started her work as the Fine Gael Councilor in Ireland in 2009, she led a highly successful career. That was until her ex-boyfriend released some rather unfortunate pictures of her looking less than professional, to put it lightly.
Mary Bono Mack – United States of America
Back in 1988, Mack replaced her late husband’s chair in the California Congress. And up until 2014, she was actually the only female Republican Congresswoman. Oh yeah, how could we forget that in 2008, Maxim actually named her the “Seventh Hottest Politician in the World”.
Ayla Malik – Pakistan
From 2002 until 2007, Ayla Malik was a Member of National Assembly in the Pakistan government. However, she was investigated by the Election Tribunal over a fake diploma submission. Yikes.

Uitslag is also spreading awareness on addiction and many other problems that ail the youth of the Netherlands.
Sarah Palin – United States of America
Okay, so Sarah Palin isn’t the brightest bulb (sorry to say) but she is beautiful! Furthermore, it was pretty wonderful to see a woman on the docket for Vice President when McCain was running for office.
Nina Siakhali Moradi – Iran
Nina Siakhali Moradi is a very educated woman with a degree in Architecture. Due to her education, she took her brains and wit to became a well respected politician. However, in 2013, she was actually disqualified from taking the political office as she was deemed ‘too attractive’. I mean, I don’t even know how to respond to that.
Belinda Stronach – Canada
Belinda Stronach is a Canadian powerhouse. First of all, she is a businesswoman, a philanthropist and a former politician. She has been long recognized as an emerging leader with vision. In 2001, the National Post named her as the most powerful businesswoman in Canada. Later that year, the World Economic Forum named her a “Global Leader of Tomorrow”. Then back in 2002, she was actually ranked #2 by Fortune Magazine in its annual list of the world’s most powerful women in business. She was also named one of Canada’s “Top 40 Under 40”, an annual award that honors the country’s most promising young leaders. All of these propelled her into stardom in Canadian politics as a result, she was the Minister of Human Resources and Skills Development and Minister responsible for Democratic Renewal in the government of Paul Martin. Brains and beauty are a powerful combination.
Hina Rabbani Khar – Pakistan
Hina Rabbani Khar is nothing short of a bombshell. She will forever be most recognized as Pakistan’s 26th Foreign Minster, an honor not many have the pleasure to hold. Hina is also a trained economist and she is also a huge political figure in Pakistan. Hina made headlines when she became the FIRST women in Pakistani history to give a budget speech to the National Assembly. We told you, bombshell, and on many levels.
Mia Love – United States of America
Why Ludmya Bourdeau Love is known as Mia Love is not something we know but what we do know is that she’s an amazing Republican politician. Love has her name in the history books as the first Haitian-American ever to serve in Congress as the Utah representative. She’s got a very promising career ahead of her.
Sheridan Esterfany – Brazil
In 2014, Sheridan Esterfany entered into the House of Representatives and would land a crucial electoral victory to land in Congress. She isn’t afraid to fight and be vocal. Therefore, don’t think that just because she’s tiny that she’s a pushover. Esterfany is a massive part of the opposition that is pushing to impeach Dilma Rousseff, the President of Brazil. We can’t wait to see what she does next.
Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner – Argentina
Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner is often referred to by her initials, CFK, and that’s pretty cool. She was the first woman to be elected president of Argentina and she served as such from 2007 to 2015. She’s also a former lawyer and politician. Therefore, we are sure she’ll be making headlines before we know it.
Kirsten Gillibrand – United States of America
Not many believed that anyone could ever be more successful as the New York Senator than Hillary Clinton but it happened. As soon as Clinton went on to become Secretary of State, Kirsten Gillibrand was her replacement. As a result, she was re-elected in 2012 with 72% of the vote. She carried on in this position for another six year term. Remarkable.
Marianne Thieme – Netherlands
Marianne Thieme is a force to be reckoned with because she’s a politician, animal rights activist and author. Thieme is very bright as she studied Law in France and in the Netherlands.

Gabriela Cuevas Barron – Mexico
Barron is a very popular Mexican politician who serves on the National Action Party (PAN) of Mexico. She was enrolled as a political science major at the Autonomous Technical Institute of Mexico. However she dropped out to join PAN. That’s pretty ambitious. She has also been an active member of PAN since 1994 and has occupied various positions, including the head of PAN. Since 2012, she has been the Senator of the State of Mexico. Not bad!
Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic – Croatia
Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic is currently the 4th President of Croatia. Most noteworthy is that she’s the FIRST woman in Europe to defeat an incumbent president who ran for re-election. Color me impressed. This year, Forbes magazine even named her the world’s 46th most powerful woman. Seems that she’s got a very bright future ahead of her.
