      Important Topics: Women’s Empowerment in the Indian Context Gender equality and women’s empowerment are essential for the development and well-being of families, communities and nations. Due to prevalence of patriarchy women have been discriminated not only in India . From the local to the global level, women’s leadership and political participation are compromised. Women are underrepresented as voters, as well as in leading positions, whether in elected offices, civil services, the private sector or academia. This occurs despite their proven abilities as leaders and agents of change, and their right to participate equally in democratic governance.

        Presently, the two largest political parties of India, the incumbent Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Indian National Congress (INC), support the women’s reservation bill in their rhetoric. The 73rd and 74th amendment to India's Constitution sought to increase representation of minority groups and women and there has also been an increase in women’s voter participation. Women are now entitled to one third of the seats in local governing bodies with enhanced room for representation and empowerment.
