Women consist of nearly half of the population of the country, yet their representation in the higher legislative bodies like the State Assemblies and Houses of Parliament remains abysmal. This leads to their concerns being sidelined. Thus, it is important that they are given due representation in these bodies, by reservation, if necessary, to ensure that they are also equally heard. The Women’s Reservation bill is a progressive attempt to remedy this situation. However, it has been in a state of inertia since the last two decades due to the unwillingness of certain political parties to agree to it. With the change in the times, it is imperative to bring men and women on an equal footing and hence, this paper attempts to critically analyze the bill and its implementation.
