Ha’Aretz put out a great inforgraph on the 19th Knesset as the final results came in  today at noon (just eb aware that tehre is a glitch: although the legend says that a “black asterix” means “returning MK” it is placed on all the *new* MKs)

As they noted in a separate article:

While females have never had equal representation in terms of population, Tuesday’s election is a strong step in the right direction. Compared to the 18th Knesset, in which 17.5% of all members were women (21 female MKs in total), the 19th Knesset is 21.6% female.

But Vera will write more on that later. For now: Meet our new parliamentarians!
