Women deserve greater political representation

That day is not too far when the women of India achieve at least fifty per cent representation in the highest rule-making body of the country.

The demand for greater political representation of women in India is not a new demand. It was there before. It will be there until it is implemented.

At present, the total number of women lawmakers in the Indian parliament is far less than the total number of men.

The women voters are less likely to tolerate this injustice for long. At the time the political participation of women stands at its peak, the women voters have no reason to tolerate this injustice and have several reasons to oppose this injustice. Their increased political participation is what gives them greater confidence and courage to demand for greater political participation. The Indian females truly deserve to be treated as equal as that of their men counterparts.

For the last few decades, the participation of rural women in the voting process has been consistently increasing. It has even surmounted the participation of urban women. It is a significant development.

The political parties have already fine-tuned their policies in a way that recognises the emerging strength of the women voters, particularly the rural women voters.

The Ujjwala Yojana is the best example of such a policy that has been designed to impress the women voters of the rural India.

In every manifesto released in connection with the upcoming general election, there are many promises aimed to impress the women voters, especially the rural women voters.

That day is not too far when the women of India achieve at least fifty per cent representation in the highest rule-making body of the country.
