Indian politics and women's representation.There have been many women in modern Indian politics, whose historical role is well known to us. The political role and initiative of women have been important during the independence movements, from running the government in independent India. Despite this, when it comes to female participation in politics, the figures present a very disappointing picture.
It is seen in most of the parties that there is a large number of women participating in the election campaign or other party functions, but when it comes to contesting elections, only a small percentage is available.
Many women come after winning elections, but when it comes to deciding where what and how to make decisions then male members of the family take that decision. However, this situation is more seen in panchayat elections. The picture is slightly different in the assembly and Lok Sabha elections.
Inactive politics is not just the responsibility of political parties for the situation of women, but also our society, which is not ready easily to accept women in politics.
