Despite suffering from symmetric representation and subsequent debate concerning the women’s representation, India still lacks the reservation for women in the Parliament. What are the reasons for the delay in the passage of the women’s reservation bill? What are the implications of the lack of sufficient women representation? 10 marks

  • In the body, mention the debate over the insignificant women representation in the Indian Parliament.
  • In the body, mention the various factors delaying the passage of the bill like lack of consensus of the reservation, issue of quota within a quota, opposition from some parties and lack of women as a pressure group etc. In the implications mention the lack of enough women in the debate on the issues concerning women, impact on the status of women etc.
  • Conclude by mentioning the need for women representation in Parliament and so the passage of the reservation bill.
