The Storting (Norwegian: Stortinget [²stuːʈɪŋə], 'the great assembly') is the parliament of Norway. It was created in 1814 by the Constitution of Norway. It is located in Oslo. The unicameral parliament has 169 members, and is elected every four years based on party-list proportional representation in nineteen constituencies.

A member of the Storting is known in Norwegian as a stortingsrepresentant, literally "Storting representative".[1]

History: The first time that a woman became a member of parliament (Norway), was in 1911, Anna Rogstad.[2]
