Mark Rutte Pm Netherlands

Mark Rutte

We need more women in Parliaments and as political leaders because gender equality in politics is a necessary condition for a truly democratic society in which all voices are heard. In the Netherlands, close to 40% of Parliamentarians are women. Worldwide unfortunately almost 80% of Parliamentarians are men. This number is a cause as well as an outcome of the severe inequality between women and men in our world. We need to improve the gender balance because it benefits both women and men, both girls and boys. Female leaders serve as an inspiration for the next generation
