Graph of Women in European Parliaments shows UK is woeful

Prop of women in parliament in EuropeAs part of International Women’s Day I thought it might be useful to reprise a graph I knocked up about six months ago to demonstrate to UNISON activists that we still had a long way to go to proper gender equality in the UK parliament.

This graph shows the UK does poorly in absolute terms and poorly relative to other countries too.

For an advanced and wealthy economy this should be a source of embarrassment and shame for us all.
