Currently only eight women elected in the 8th Majlis (elected in March 2008), in comparison to four women in the first, second, and third Majlis; nine in the fourth Majlis; 14 in the fifth and sixth Majlis sessions; and 13 in the seventh. Those women elected to the new Majlis are all conservative. Source: http://www.ocnus.net/artman2/publish/Analyses_12/Iran_s_2008.shtml

Before the May 2010 election there were 126 women MPs at Westminster, 128 were elected originally but two died in the meantime. Please use the 1st link below for information. … Initial results (researched on the 8 May 2010) show a very small rise expected (2%) at the May 2010 election. Please use the 2nd link below for information. Since there is no English Parliament this answer is completely wrong. It refers to the British Parliament full of british MPs
I know someone from Iran. He says that in private places, women dress the same as American women. He also says the a lot of women in Iran are rebelling against the dress code…s for women in public. After the Iranian revolution in 1979 the mullah's came to power and introduced Islamic law's where women have to wear a Hejab (head scarf) or a veil and woman cannot where cosmetics. But of couse in a private area you can dress however you want. Very good answer! Iranian women, according to religion are not allowed to show their beauty to anyone but their husband and those accepted for them. Also, of course in a private place with no men or with just their husbands. Women can too wear cosmetics they all do just not too much so you look like a clown and that will make men look at you. ------- Now I'm not saying your answers are wrong it's just, I've been to Iran a numerous amount of times, I grew up knowing the culture, I can speak the language, and most of my family is from Iran. When I went to Iran last summer, many girls in the streets wore a ton of makeup and they were barely following the "dress code" or whatever you'd like to call it. This wasn't just a few of the girls it was a lot. I knew some people like that. I'd never heard of the private places, but in their homes they did that. The people there want to be free. They don't want people to tell them what to wear and all that other stuff. They want to be like the people like America, to have their rights like they did a long time ago. That is why the people in are Iran fighting, because they want their rights. Your answers were great but I just wanted to point something out. Thank You. -------- Iranian Ladies are the most intense users of cosmetics all over the world, maybe it's somehow exaggeration, but most ladies, specially in the capital city Tehran, they do lots of make-ups while even they're wandering up over the street, make-ups which in Europe and the United States ya can only figure that prostitutes come with ! but it's something regular for a girl who's even got Islamic attitude to do a heavy make-up on her face, I guess that's the most true answer. guessI'm talking about the experience, coz I do reside in Tehran, Iran. (My IP Address may be easily checked upon the claim I've made!)
England is the only constituent country of the UK without a national assembly.
yes, but in a very unfair system that means that their votes count for not a lot
45 of 129 MSP's are women. Shocking!
In Iran, it is a law that women cover themselves. Many women do not want to have to cover themselves in the way the Iranian government wants them too, however. If you do some …research, you can see that this is reflected in the style in which many Iranian women dress. Many Muslims do not in fact believe that the way Iranian women dress can be considered hijab. This is not to say though that there aren't women who don't want to cover themselves.
MEPs: 736 03. 2008 - 539 men (69%), 246 women (31%) http://www.europarl.europa.eu/sides/getDoc.do?pubRef=-//EP//TEXT+IM-PRESS+20080229STO22577+0+DOC+XML+V0//EN
Because they can hide booms better
Currently there are 38 women in New Zealand's parliament, out of 122 total members.
Iran is governed under Shariah law. The rights of women are necessarily less than those of men.
None because there is no English Parliament. There has not been an English Parliament since 1st May 1707.
It is a part of local traditions and culture. It is not compulsory per Islam religion to cover face and hands.
60 Lok Sabha MPs [15th Lok Sabha] and 26 Rajya Sabha MPs are women. Thus a total of 86 MPs are women in Indian Parliament as on September 2012.
no the women have to where the scarf things over there heads.
48 or 49 i think :)
