Revealed: Why there are so few women in Leinster House

Interesting B&A survey of women's attitudes in today's IT - the sample size was 1,003 women aged 18+.

Combining the scores given under “Very Important” and “Quite Important”, the survey throws up some very interesting conclusions:

Personal care (skin/hair) 93%
Financial Independence 91%
Leisure Time 90%
Female friends 90%
Keeping fit 81%
Equality of the sexes 78%
Husband/boyfriend 75%
Taking care of children 69%
Having children in the future 42%
Politics 38%

Good to see that their men made it into the top 10.
And are you still wondering why there aren’t more women in Leinster House?
