A record number of female MPs have been elected to the House of Commons following the General Election.
Some 220 women won seats in the 2019 poll - up from 208 two years ago.
Across Surrey, Sussex and Kent, 15 constituencies are now represented by female MPs.
That includes Rosie Duffield in Canterbury, who held on to her seat for Labour with an increased majority.
Other female MPs to hold their seats were Conservatives Maria Caulfield in Lewes and Tracey Crouch in Chatham and Aylesford, and Green Party MP Caroline Lucas in Brighton Pavilion.
Among the new female MPs is Natalie Elphicke in Dover.
The wife of the constituency's former Tory MP Charlie Elphicke successfully stood for election in his place - and nearly doubled his majority from 6,437 to 12,278.
In Eastbourne the town's former Conservative MP, Caroline Ansell, took the constituency back from Lib Dem Stephen Lloyd. She had lost the seat to him in 2017.
But nationally, men will still considerably outnumber women - with female MPs representing 34% of the Commons.
The Conservative grip tightened on the region, with increased majorities and a seat taken from the Liberal Democrats.
Caroline Lucas has been re-elected as the MP for Brighton Pavilion, with an increased majority.
The Green's only UK MP beat Labour's Adam Imanpour by 19,940 votes, 5,241 more votes than the majority at the 2017 election.
Emma Hogan of the Conservative Party came third and the Brexit Party's Richard Milton came fourth.
Voter turnout was down by 3.1 percentage points since the last general election.
Nearly 58,000 people, roughly three-quarters of those eligible to vote, went to polling stations across the area on Thursday, in the first December general election since 1923.
Four of the seven candidates, Richard Milton (The Brexit Party), Citizen Skwith (Monster Raving Loony Party), Bob Dobbs (independent) and Nigel Furness (UKIP) lost their £500 deposits after failing to win 5% of the vote.
This story was created using some automation.
The UK's only Green Party MP has held onto her seat with an increased majority.
Since 2010 this has been the seat of the UK’s first and, so far, only Green Party MP, Caroline Lucas, and it will take a swing of nearly 13% for challenger Adam Imanpour to win back a seat Labour held for 15 years.
With an estimated declaration time of 06:00 GMT, this contest will also feature candidates from both the Brexit Party (Richard Milton) and UKIP (Nigel Furness), although in a constituency which voted 74.1% in favour of remain in the 2016 referendum, it remains to be seen how much headway they will be able to make.
Emma Louise Hogan will be hoping to pull off a surprise win for the Conservatives, for whom it was a stronghold until 1995.
Completing the line-up are independent Bob Dobbs and the Monster Raving Loony Party candidate Citizen Skwith.
Green Party candidate Caroline Lucas, who previously held the party's only seat in Parliament, Brighton Pavilion, tweets her take on the exit poll result.
The poll predicts her party will win one seat again this time.
