Democracy implies equality for all, irrespective of color, class, or gender. Men and women are equal but in reality, at the grassroots of the Indian democracy, the role of women is just restricted to a vote bank.
India had Mrs. Indira Gandhi as the Prime Minister of the country for 15 years, at present, there are many women chief ministers in various states but despite this fact, India in the 21st century is fighting with issues like women security, female foeticide, low sex ratio, women illiteracy, and higher maternity deaths.
Issues of women can be addressed in one way by increasing the political participation of women in the electoral commission. There are various social evils like dowry, illiteracy, ignorance and economic slavery that can be eradicated only by increasing the political participation of women. We thrive hard to minimize and eradicate the social evils of the society. Our initiatives will be spread across all fields.
