Has the tide finally turned for women in EU top jobs? Ursula von der Leyen is tapped to become the first female president of the European Commission and Christine Lagarde looks set to head the European Central Bank. Following the European election, 40 percent of members of the European Parliament are women. That is a record high — but still far from matching the 51 percent of women that make up the EU population. While some countries have doubled their share of female MEPs compared to 2014, one member state will now have no female MEPs.
