Japan vs the West: Women in parliament

Female represenation in parliaments in Sweden, Germany, Netherlands, China, Japan and the United States, graph

I played around a bit with Google’s graphs, and realised Rwanda has surpassed Sweden in having the biggest proportion of women in parliament.

Apparently China has a bigger proportion of women in parliament (or equivalent) than the US, always had.

And Japan is at the bottom of the chart, not very surprising since the country scores a 95 on Hofstede’s masculinity index.
