When you’re a high-profile world leader, name-calling comes with the job. For female world leaders in particular, that language can get a bit more colorful – and misogynistic.

No one knows that better than South Korean President Park Geun-hye, 64, who often gets many hateful threats hurled at her from North Korea.

When it comes to using violent rhetoric against the South, the North is certainly not shy. At one point, Pyongyang pledged to turn the South in to a "sea of fire." But the South reserves its most hateful, sexist words for the South's first female president.

In a new brazen personal attack, North Korea's state-run newspaper ran an article Sunday calling Park a "insane, old b----" and a "murderous devil." The article was a response to the South's recent attempts to impose stronger sanctions on the communist state.

There are currently less than 20 female world leaders, including the recent appointment of Tsai Ing-wen in Taiwan. Since 2005, the number of female leaders has doubled, according to Pew, and female leadership is common in Nordic countries as well as South Asia, Southeast Asia and South America.

Still, sexism in executive roles is alive and well in leadership roles -- and not just in the executive office. In Germany, a male politician's comments over how well a female journalist could "fill out a dirndl" caused widespread condemnation. (A "drindl" is a traditional low-cut woman's dress worn in Germany.)

It's worth to note that the politician who made the comment, Rainer Brüderle, is a front-runner in the national elections in Germany -- where Angela Merkel is chancellor.

Here's a quick list of the most recent comments against female world leaders:

1. Every awful, sexist phrase imaginable 

North Korea to South Korean President Park Geun-hye

North Korea has some creative phrasing when spewing sexist remarks at Park. Here's just a sample of them:

"A capricious whore who asks her fancy man to do harm to other person while providing sex to him," North Korea. April  2014

"Old cat groaning in her sickbed," April 2014

"Park put thick makeup on her old, wrinkled face and rambled on," April 2014

2. Accomplishing great things #DespiteBeingAWoman

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina

When he’s not hugging world leaders, Narendra Modi is putting his foot in his mouth. In June, the prime minister evoked controversy when he praised Sheik Hasina, the prime minister of Bangladesh, for her resolve to fight terrorism “despite being a woman.

His comment sparked outrage on Twitter, when users lampooned Modi for his sexist remark by concocting their own #DespiteBeingAWoman tweets.

As my colleague Rama Lakshima pointed out, Modi has sought to be viewed as an advocate for women when so many in his party are apt to say sexist and misogynistic remarks. Perhaps he can take his own advice.

3. 'This old hag'

Uruguayan President Jose Mujica to Argentina’s former president Christina Fernandez de Kirchner

There’s a whole host of world leaders caught saying things they shouldn’t on microphones. Uruguay’s President Jose Mujica is no exception.

Before the start of a news conference, Mujica was overheard saying, “This old hag is even worse than the cross-eyed man.”

The “cross-eyed man” Mujica was referencing was Kirchner’s late husband, former president Nestor Kirchner, who had a lazy eye and died of a heart attack in 2010. Yet the “hag” comment was clearly pointed at Kirchner, and Mujica has since apologized to her. And Mexico. And Haiti.

4. Julia Gillard as 'Kentucky fried quail'

Menu item makes reference to Australia Prime Minister Julia Gillard

When diners sat down to enjoy their fundraising meal for one of the candidates in Australia’s Liberal National Party in 2013, they were given a list of menu options -- one of which included then-prime minister’s name attached to a particular dish: “Julia Gillard Kentucky fried quail – small breasts, huge thighs and a big red box Moroccan carrot salad and sumac yoghurt.”

Mal Brough, the LNP candidate, apologized and said he did not “condone the menu.” Gillard responded herself, saying the menu was “grossly sexist” and “offensive.”

Gillard has tackled sexism in Australia before. In 2012, she delivered a famous 15-minute speech on misogyny, calling out Prime Minister Tony Abbott on the multitude of his sexist remarks.
