well you got to take into account what type of electoral systems are used in those countries. Lists and proportional representation are naturally going to end up with much more women. Including non-democratic countries is kind of pointless since all parlimentarians there are basically appointed and thus one can easily make almost half women to appear as egalitarian as possible. That's the reason for Rwanda by the way, after Tutsi rebel groups ended the genocide they set up their own government and while it's fairly autocratic and non-democratic it's a hell of a lot better than what the country had before, not that nothing would be.

Anyone seen Hotel Rwanda btw? I just did some rentals and almost got it. How good is it?

But how many Muslim terrorist groups have women in them? I think the only one is Hamas.

Just about every other rebel/guerilla/terrorist group in the world has female members.
