Only 7% of the candidates in the 2019 Indian General Election were women. That, however, is still 7% more than ran in Limerick Co. for the last GE here in 2016. Not in agreement with overly-rigid gender quotas, but female representation is important. @women4election

Of the posters I have seen so far, there is definitely a notable difference in the percentage of women running👌 #womenforelection @women4election #localelections #Europeanelections
