"Men Missing from G-20 Spouses Photo"

This is the group photo taken at the G-20 spouses dinner. The world being what it is, the bulk of the G-20 heads of government are men. But not all of them. And yet somehow the men didn’t make it to the photo or perhaps didn’t make it to the dinner:

That’s via Dana Goldstein who remarks:

You know, it’s perfectly okay if [Nestor] Kirchner and [Joachim] Sauer have better things to do than pose for silly pictures and be props for their politician wives. I wish more female political spouses had the same convictions, and that the public could accept that. But it would still be pretty rad to see some male faces at the spouse table from time to time. Things are changing — but sometimes the world can’t see it.

Good points.
