      Centre For Social Research

Women’s voice is still excluded from higher levels of Indian politics. The Women’s Reservation Bill aims to address this issue by expanding the reservation system to include state and national legislatures. This Bill has the ability to significantly alter India’s political landscape by ensuring women’s active participation in all level of governance.
