Rwanda - world’s first women-led country Flag%20of%20Rwanda

Rwanda will soon become the first country in the world where female politicians outnumber male politicians. The small central African country has made huge progress since its tragic genocide in the 1990s. It can now proudly call itself a beacon of sexual equality. The ruling party coalition won 78% of seats in the election. Women took at least 44 out of a total of the 80 seats. Since the genocide, the government has encouraged women into politics. Many in Rwanda say the election results show that people are fed up with male-dominated politics. They say women will bring freshness and change to the nation.

 

Do you think that women are better politicians?

 It would be nice to see more women into politics. Given a fair chance they can prove they are better politicians.  
Looking at the bigger picture, we can see that politics is male-dominated and women get discouraged.
