Election 2010: women MP’s now make up less then 25 percent of parliament, with significant consequences

“Until the Government looks like the society it seeks to govern there will be an imbalance in the decision making process.”  Why has the number of female political leaders dropped? Partly because 9 out of 20 of the sitting members who did not seek re election were women, but also because women make up less then 2% of the Liberal National Party of Queensland, which reaped the rewards of the Labor backswing.
