Girl Power! More Women Than Men Rule in Rwanda

Rwanda is the first country where women outnumber men in parliament. Following horrific genocide in 1994, Rwanda adopted a new constitution. Among other things, it guarantees 30 percent female representation in parliament.

Thus, even before the latest election of 44 women to fill 80 seats, Rwanda held the world's record for most women to men in parliament. But now, that rate has risen from 48 percent to 55 percent. In honor of the election, test how much you know about the landlocked African country.

Maybe I'm misinterpreting what I just read, but isn't it a little subjective to say that Rwanda promotes "girl power" (as the post's title states) when its constitution mandates that a certain percentage of women have to be in the government? I don't think it's a good or bad thing either way, but I think it's kind of a half-truth, if you will.

I know this is completely besides the point, but someone should've told this woman her barn door was open prior to taking the photo. Let's just focus on the really cute child...:)

Nelson Mandela says peace negotiations should always include women because they're more likely to think in terms of the needs of the next generation and not about their own position in the community. Now we'll see what happens when it's taken the next step.
