Alva Myrdal, chief Swedish delegate to the Geneva dis- armament conference, is one of .the country's two female cabinet members, as minister of church affairs. Camilla Odhnoff is consultative minis- ter for family affairs. LONG TIME LAG Australian women have voted since their country's federation in 1901 but the first female senator and represent- ative weren't elected until 1943. It took women in South Af- rica 18 years after gaining suffrage in 1930 to elect a fe- male legislator to parliament. Currently one of the 54 sena- tors is a woman, and two are in tile House of As- sembly. In the Soviet Union, where women have had voting rights since the 1917 revolution, the sole female cabinet member is Ekaterina A. Furtseva, minister of culture. A protege of the late premier Nikita Khrushchev, she was once a member of the Politburo but was dropped In a political re- shuffle after he fell from power. One female judge sits on the 20-member Soviet Su- preme Court.

Women in South Vietnam have had the vote since elec- tions were inaugurated after the Second World War. There is one woman in the 60-seat Senate and five female depu- ties recently were elected to the 159-member lower house. In North Vietnam, 125 depu- ties in the 420-member parlia- ment are women. Twenty-three sit in the 460- seat Indonesian House of Rep- resentatives but most hold their positions mainly because of the political strength of their husbands. In Egypt, where women won full politi- cal rights in 1956, six were in the 365-mcmber parliament dissolved in September. Argentine women gained suf- frage in 1947. There has been no Congress since the ruling military regime did away with national legislative bodies In 1966. Uruguay's 31-member Se- nate includes two women; one woman sits in the 99-member House of Deputies. Even at the highest levels a woman's entry into politics usually is through family ties.
