Post-election, New Zealand's Parliament is once again mostly men.

In the previous term the numbers had been equal, now it's 68 men to 53 women.

The National Party's 50 person caucus has 34 men, to 16 women.

That's despite some moves from leader Christopher Luxon to even the scales.

Political scientist Lara Greaves spoke to Charlotte Cook.
