Map showing countries that have had women appointed or elected as heads of state (counting Governors-General as heads of state, but excluding monarchs):
  Female head of government[a]
  Female head of state[1]
  Female head of state/government (combined)
  Female head of state and female head of government
Three former sovereign states (East Germany, Tannu Tuva, and Yugoslavia) have also had a female Head of State or Head of Government

This is a list of women who have been elected or appointed head of state or government of their respective countries since the mid-20th century. The list does not include female monarchs, however it does include female heads of government who are not concurrently head of state, such as prime ministers.

To date, the country with most female Heads of State is San Marino (16, with three of them serving two non-consecutive terms).
