Women and Parties in Parliaments


Explore the Data Blog Post


Alex Parsons


International comparisons of the representation of women in legislative parliaments/assemblies can obscure the differences within each country of the representation of women at the party level.

To understand more about this, we’ve built an experimental mini site to examine the roles of parties in driving the representation of women. Using data from EveryPolitician.org (which contains gender and party information for a number of countries), we can explore the respective contributions of different parties to representation of women.
