However, analysis shows an increase from 48 to 51 female MSPs - around 40%, up from 37.2% in 1999, and that this has been achieved by accident, rather than design.

Feminist Theory Website
The Feminist Theory Website provides research materials and information
for students, activists, and scholars interested in women's conditions and
struggles around the world. The goals of this website are:
1) to encourage a wide range of research into feminist theory, and
2) to encourage dialogue between women (and men) from different countries around the world. Hopefully, this will result in new connections, new ideas, and new information about feminist theory and women's movements.
