Trump has a lower percentage of women in his administration compared to former Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama.
Of the 757 key executive branch nominees put forth by Mr. Trump for positions that require Senate confirmation, about 27.6 percent have been women. Of the 679 that have been confirmed, about 25 percent have been women. That’s a lower percentage compared to some of the previous presidents. 37 percent of the first 512 appointees in the Bill Clinton administration were women, 26 percent of George W. Bush’s first 264 nominations were women, and 43 percent of Barack Obama’s appointments were women at the start of his second term.
At the cabinet-level, Mr. Trump has nominated seven women and 32 men. That’s lower than the eight women who served at cabinet-level positions in Mr. Obama’s first term and 10 in his second term, and the nine who served in Mr. Clinton’s second term.
