Data from the International Parliamentary Union shows only two countries in the world have more women than men in their parliaments.
Rwanda has the most female representation in the world at 63.8% - that’s 51 out of 80 lower house seats.
Followed by Bolivia with 53.1%, or 69 out of 130 seats.
Australia was previously ranked #56. We've now leapfrogged Vietnam, Kazakhstan, Belarus, Poland, Afghanistan and Luxembourg to #49th.
But that still ranks us behind the United Kingdom, Nepal, Sudan, Trinidad and Tobago, Cameroon, Tunisia, New Zealand, Zimbabwe, Algeria, Macedonia, Uganda, Serbia, East Timor, Ethiopia, Mozambique, Mexico, Senegal and Cuba.
