Number of women in parliament in Denmark 1990-2019

Between 1990 and 2019, the number of women in the Danish parliament, Folketinget, fluctuated but increased overall. Although the highest share of women ever in the Danish parliament was just slightly more than a third of the the total seats, the number of women in parliament reached an all time high in 2019, with 68 women elected from Danish political parties. Folketinget consists of 179 members. 175 of these mandates derive from Danish political parties, while four mandates come from Greenland and the Faroe Islands. Thus, the actual share of women in Folketinget, including the representatives from Greenland and the Faroe Islands, was even higher in 2019, and amounted to 70 women.
