In this research note, I introduce a new concept for examining womens political representation. This concept deals with womens representation both in parliaments and governments. I name the new concept ""womens representation in national politics."" The empirical results of this study demonstrate that the independent variable region is the variable with the greatest explanatory power of the independent variables used in this study. The results show that Scandinavia has extraordinarily high levels of female representation in national politics. The results also show that three countries in Oceania-Nauru, Palau, and Tuvalu-do not have any female representation in national politics.
