Empowerment of women through political participation in Indian movements
The affirmative action policy of introducing gender quotas have been shown to increase political participation. However, some find quota and competence to be incompatible in practice and hence counterproductive for policy making. In this concise academic paper, argue that gender quotas not only have a substantive effect on political participation when men and women have different policy preferences. But they also outstretch and root of gender inequality uneven power relation by given women agency. I validate this by using country-specific academic evidence and demonstrating India as an example.
