Seats held by women in national parliaments almost doubled since 1995!

It’s great news that the percentage of women in national parliaments increased from 12% to 22% in the last 20 years. A testament to the fact that acceptance of women in politics as well as higher offices in general becomes more and more accepted, eventhough slowly. Although it is sad that we as a species still have to fight for the equality of men and women as it should be a given, it is still encouraging to know that we are moving in the right direction!

We still have a long way to go, but fortunately it is estimated that in the next 10 years this trend will slightly accelerate, leading to 32% of seats held by women in 2025.

Who knows, maybe we can achieve even more!
