Rwanda Leads World With Share Of Women In National Legislature
Women hold 64 percent of seats in the lower house of Rwanda’s national legislature, the largest share of any country. For comparison, only 19 percent of seats in the U.S. House are held by women.
There’s just one problem even though Rwanda is arguably the most pro-woman country in the world, feminism is not seen as a good thing. In fact, it’s something of a dirty word.
