After the federal election and with a few seats still undecided, women are expected to take at least 81 of the 227 seats across both houses of the new Australian parliament.

These women will make up approximately 35 percent of parliament, which is a slight improvement on the previous parliament, where approximately 31 percent of parliamentarians were women.

In the lower house, there could be up to 45 female MPs.
