I think the Rwanda figure surprises me because though it was many years ago when I hear Rwanda, my mind gets stuck thinking of the genocide and picture refugee camps and think of the "rivers of blood."

Yes, that's the dominant item in my mind when I hear 'Rwanda' as well.

30% of the seats in parliament are reserved for women under a quota system. The latest parliament is over 60% female, meaning the country really does prefer women to some significant degree (it isn't just the quota system creating high numbers).
