100 years with women in The Norwegian Parliament

Anna Rogstad by Arbeiderpartiet under CC BY-ND 2.0

March 17th 1911 Anna Rogstad became the first female representative in The Norwegian Parliament (Stortinget).  An anniversary worth celebrating!

Today 39,6 percent of the members of parliament are women and in the cabinet 50 percent of the members are women.
