A record number of 101 Dutch municipalities currently have a female mayor. That means that 29 percent of mayors in the Netherlands are women, BNR reports based on figures requested from the Dutch Society of Mayors.
In 2017, the Netherlands counted 81 female mayors. The increase since then, combined with the reduced number of municipalities as a result of municipal redivision, brought the share of female mayors up to 29 percent. The Netherlands currently has 355 municipalities.
