4. Gender, Religion and Caste

Women Political Representation

Women Political Representation In India, the proportion of women in legislature has been very low. In the government cabinets are largely all-male even when a woman become the Chief Minister or the Prime Minister. One way to solve this problem is to make it legally binding to have a fair proportion of women in the elected bodies. One-third of seats in Panchayats and municipalities - are now reserved for women. Women’s organisations and activities have been demanding a reservation of at least one-third of seats in the Lok Sabha and State Assemblies for women. Gender division is an example that some form of social division needs to be expressed in politics.
