BBC NEWS | Africa | Women to rule Rwanda parliament

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/africa/7620816.stm

Rwanda has now become the first country in history to have a Parliament with a female majority. It’s quite kickass, yes, but unless the military too gains a female majority, I fear it may also be short-lived. It would be nice if this had happened without people needing to set up quotas following a genocide. But if this proves to be stable in its own right, it will be very good for Rwanda.
