Papua New Guinea's cabinet has taken on something of a new look of late.

For the first time, it includes more than one female MP.

Delilah Gore was appointed to the cabinet recently as Higher Education minister, joining Community Development Minister Loujaya Kouza.

The higher education minister says attitudes are changing rapidly in PNG and she predicts there will be many more female MPs in parliament after the next election.
