There is now substantial political literature to suggest that having women political representatives aids the case of gender equality. Not only is this because women deserve equal rights of representation as men, but because they are sensitive to issues which, at best, either escape the attention of male representatives, or, at worst, are ignored deliberately due to embedded patriarchal structures. This was the rationale behind the Women s Reservation Bill, providing 33% reservation to women in legislative bodies, which has been languishing in Parliament for decades. It was also the rationale behind the reservations for women in Panchayat bodies. And while the initial trend may have been male political leaders ruling by proxy, the Panchayat experience has enabled women to assert themselves, raise local issues, get groomed as leaders and get empowered.
