In celebration of International Women’s Day 2022, digital mapping specialist Esri Ireland has created a map which recognises female representation in national parliaments across the world. The map charts current figures (World Bank 2020) and compares these to data from 1997.
According to the figures, Ireland’s national parliament comprises 23% female representation, which has almost doubled compared to just 12% in 1997.
Rwanda currently tops the list as the country with the highest female political representation at 61%, followed by Cuba at 53% and the United Arab Emirates at 50%. Mexico (48%) and New Zealand (48%) round out the top five.
