From British daily The Morning Star:
Women ‘are still sidelined in politics’
(Friday 06 March 2009)
THE Inter-Parliamentary Union revealed on Thursday that women only account for around 18 per cent of the seats in parliaments worldwide.
In its annual report card, the group bemoaned “slow progress” in achieving gender equality in world legislatures.
During 2008, parliamentary elections took place in 54 countries and women’s representation increased to 18.3 per cent – up from 17.7 per cent last year and 11.3 per cent in 1995.
The UN economic and social council had set a target of having a minimum of 30 per cent women MPs in all parliaments by 1995.
A whole generation of women is lost to politics: here.
