Occupation: Japanese politician & former Defense Minister
Why She’s a Babe: Because the former TV news presenter (sound familiar?) and first female Defense Minister of Japan is making a bid to become her country’s first female Prime Minister. And while not every feminist is on-board with Yuriko, she’s a game-changer in terms of how the world perceives Japanese women. Also, last year, in front of a U.S. audience, she likened herself to Condoleezza Rice and told the crowd to call her “Madam Sushi,” which did not play well at home. But we love rice jokes. And sushi. And madams. And pretty female politicians. Er…with a few exceptions.
