Women in the US Congress and European Parliament

The proportion of female members of the US Congress and of the European Parliament have both increased over time, with the former consistently having fewer women than the latter. Congress counted only 3 % female members in 1979, although the proportion has risen to 23.6 % this term. The proportion of women in the European Parliament at the start of each parliamentary term has also shown steady growth, from 16.6 % in 1979, to 40.6 % in the current (2019-2024) term.
