8 Women in Norway Cabinet

May 09, 1986|Associated Press

OSLO — King Olav V today installed a new 18-member minority government led by a woman, Labor Party leader Gro Harlem Brundtland, and including a record eight female Cabinet members.

The government replaces a coalition led by Conservative Premier Kaare Willoch, who resigned May 2 after failing to push economic austerity measures through Parliament. At eight, Brundtland's Cabinet has twice as many women as Willoch's, including the first woman ever to fill the post as Norway's minister of agriculture, Gunhild Oeyangen, a 38-year-old farmer and politician.
