The political earthquake keeps on rumbling. Not only has Britain voted narrowly to leave the EU - sparking financial and political tumult across the globe - but those seemingly most likely to pick up the pieces are largely women.
Never before have female politicians stood in such a pole position to assume the reins of power.
For the first time it is not inconceivable that we will soon have a female US president and possibly vice president too ; at the same time we may be about to have our second female British prime minister who may well be facing a female Leader of the Opposition.
If Scotland breaks away from the United Kingdom, it is almost certain that it too would be led by a woman with another heading up its official opposition.
Germany, of course, is already run by a formidable woman, chancellor Angela Merkel, who is known to have been a role-model for many females now rising up in politics in her wake.
We may be therefore about to witness the biggest stride ever for the feminist movement, heralding a new era in world politics. Until now, government has been a macho, male-dominated world - its leaders, officials, MPs and even media commentators have been overwhelmingly men; its style has been barracking, football-obsessed and tribal.
Now at last, we may be about to witness a new style of government and possibly even a new way of reporting on it. It is a gigantic opportunity for the women involved and millions of other women will be watching and hoping they make the most of it.
