Celebrate 20 July
For the first time in history, a country's voters elected a female to become head of state, on 20 July, 1960. The country in question was Ceylon (which later changed its name to Sri Lanka), and the woman was Sirimavo Bandaranaike. You could toast the occasion with a spot of Ceylon tea.
