First female member of Parliament, Anna Rogstad, April 1911

Front cover of the Sphere showing Anna Rogstad the first female member of Parliament in the world as she takes her place in the Nowegian Storting. Rogstad was formerly a high-profile teacher who went on to significantly influence Norway's educational policy, an active member of the Norwegian Teacher's Union, and one of the founding members of the Association for Women's Suffrage. The Sphere comments on the extension of the franchise to women in 1907, which also allowed for Rogstad's election, as having not "upest the equilibrium of Norwegian politics", as well as conveying the somewhat surprised reaction of the male members of the assembly. Date: 1911
