Female Representation in Parliament (Africa, Middle East and Egypt)
Data from Inter-Parliamentary Union ( and Al Masry Al Youm article for Egypt
Now just to compare global regions - we can see that the Arab countries fare quite poorly (and Egypt sits at the bottom of those unfortunately)... Also, interestingly, the Nordic countries are far ahead of the rest of the world in female representation, almost providing them equal opportunity (assuming a 50/50 population split)... For a full list of percent female representation by country please see here... A more detailed analysis (i.e. breakdown by upper and lower houses for a select subset of countries can be found here)
Just to compare to US congress see below, since US just tends to have very easily accessbile data (as illustrated by this report)
