Arrow Urgent need of reservation for women in India


India, world's largest democracy lags behind countries like Pakistan, Nepal and Bangladesh in terms of women empowerment. With elections next year the AWRB has urged the UPA government to ensure 33 per cent women's reservation bill..

DESPITE OF tall claims by both centre as well as governments of respective states, India stands the lowest amongst its neighbouring countries as far as reservation for women is concerned.

According to a survey, reservation for women stands at only 8.2 per cent in India while in Pakistan it is over 21 per cent, Nepal 30 per cent and Bangladesh is 10 per cent. Expressing serious concern over the least participation of women in country’s progress, the Alliance for Women’s Reservation Bill (AWRB) has accused the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government at the centre of betraying the commitments made in the Common Minimum Program (CMP) of mainstreaming women in the legislative process and structures effectively.


The Alliance, which is consisting of nearly 30 women groups besides other support groups and grass-root organisations, maintained that the South Asian countries including those, which have dictatorships, show political will in making provisions and implementing reservation for women in their parliaments and assemblies, but so far India continues to lag behind.

After staging dharnas outside the Parliament, AWRB has sent a memorandum to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh demanding that the 33 per cent women’s reservation bill must be tabled and voted upon in this half of the budget session. It said that since women form 50 per cent of the electorate in India, this election year is an opportunity for the government to ensure the passage of the bill.
Veena Nayyar, director of Women’s Political Watch, an Non Governmental Organisation (NGO) working for the upliftment of women said, "Women are angry, tired and feel insulted by unmeant and unkept promises by manifestos and speeches of the senior most leadership of the country and these too pick up momentum only in the election year."


She said that field surveys show that the common man is supporting and even seeking women’s participation in governance, but it is only the men-in-power who are opposing, denying and occupying women’s rightful places.

Women's reservation is a conspiracy to pass anti-male laws

The women's reservation bill is an anathema to gender equality since it prohibits 50% of the population, the men, to contest from certain constituencies simply because they are male. This is an apartheid. Women have not been prohibited from contesting and winning on their own merit then why have reservations? If there are more men in parliament and state assemblies, it is not because women have been prohibited but it is because the men have competed and won. The women's reservation bill is the starting point of a series of reservations and anti-male legislations. Know about what anti-male laws have done to the social fabric of India www.498a.org, www.saveindianfamily.org

Soon after the reservations in parliament and state legislatures, there would be demands for reservations in govt. and private jobs. After that, out of turn promotions for women! Tax exemptions could follow. All because women have managed to get politically organised and the men are hoodwinked into believing the feminist theories. Its time that the men wake up and start fighting back!

For your information, most of the common men are being fooled into believing that women's reservations would mean better governance. In reality, it would simply mean more anti-male laws and more and more male suicides.

I think we should get rid of all types of reservations. Only then equality will be in. Until that time discrimination will always exist.

Think about some MP's : men or women, what have they achieved, but were elected due to sheer public image. Think about accountability and not reservation.

All reservation policies are part of vote bank politics and appeasement policies. To India be the next developed country we should get away from such deterring policies.

@ anticorruption

We can remove reservations only when there is equality in all prospects. Guarantee me there is no caste discrimination in any corner of the country, then come & start removing caste policies.

Think about some MP's : men or women, what have they achieved, but were elected due to sheer public image. Think about accountability and not reservation. << What about Rahul Gandhi, YS Jagan Mohan Reddy (Andhra Pradesh)...? Are they from Resered category...!?! Do you have the guts to prove that MPs from upper castes are not indulge in corruption...!?!

All reservation policies are part of vote bank politics and appeasement policies. To India be the next developed country we should get away from such deterring policies. << I agree with you on this but only after the corruption & all sorts of discriminations are over...

Jai Hind!

I am not in favour of any reservations. Women are competent to achieve everything, if they set their sights on it. There are many qualified and capable women who can run the country in much better way. But will they come forward? No! Its not because there are no reservations, but precisely for the same reason why some of the very qualified men do not enter politics

Creating reservation will only create a farce where some vested interests will make their ever obeying wives to stand for elections, win and be a puppet in the hands of the husbands.

There are so many WOMANS COMMISSIONs in our country Bharat .. so many cases registered.. to help WOMEN be at peace and happy.. but despite that our country WOMEN feel unsafe, insecure,unhappy ...
So many rapes taking place everyday, so many sexual harassments going everywhere especially in offices. so many girls,women commit suicides,hundreds of Divorce cases everyday even among those who are married to highly educated,
Whats the reason?
Our country has become a CRIME CENTRE of all types due to failure of a good governance.

I feel there should be no reservation anywhere. Merit should be the only criteria. There is no dearth of examples of boys and girls from very humble homes having excelled in life. So l feel we should stop talking about reservation and look for able men and women to take the lead in all walks of life.

Why Women are given Reservations is because
1)You go in crowded buses, Men who are hefty,strong will never offer a seat to pregnant ladies, or elderly women
2)In Jobs if there are 10 men working and one Woman then all Men get together and think ways of pulling down the lady and accusing her of not working PROPERLY
3)Women have Menstrual cycle every month - period during which she is weak physically and is not supposed to do heavy work like lifting heavy bags,vessels,handle heavy machines,etc etc ( Because if she does any heavy work during this period there may be chances that her Uterus get damaged and her chances of being a mother becomes ZERO and she will never have children) So it is utmost important for her to not work on these days hence reservation is required.
4) When a WOMAN is pregnant she definitely needs to take rest and take care of her baby in her womb so she needs at least 6 months maternity leave during these months.If she works there may be miscarriage THEREFORE RESERVATION IS A MUST
5)Women are more emotional and hence care for others and MEN are ruthless( throw away women out of jobs in a second) <hence reservation is a MUST>
