Men and Women

without comments

Noted by an internet contact: When it comes to party leaders, women outnumber men in Denmark!

  • Unity List – collective leadership but mainly represented by Line Barfoed and Johanne Schmidt Nielsen
  • Socialists – Villy Søvndal
  • Social Democrats – Helle Thorning Schmidt
  • Social Liberals – Margrethe Vestager
  • Christian Democrats – Bodil Kornbæk
  • New Alliance – Naser Khader (re: party leadership – a little complicated here)
  • Liberals – Anders Fogh Rasmussen
  • Conservatives – Bendt Bendtsen (not unlikely that he will be succeeded by a woman)
  • Danish People’s Party – Pia Kjærsgaard

That makes five parties led or represented by women against four represented by men. In terms of electoral support, it’s more or less fifty/fifty.

You will of cause have noted the left-right tendency.
