Women’s participation in politics has always been an issue concerning modern-day political experts. Traditionally, they played second-fiddle to their male counterparts for no fault of theirs. The role of women in the legislature is one of the most arduous and integral aspects of blooming democracy in its truest sense. But the Women’s Reservation Bill lying before the Parliament provides limited scope for great improvements in the said arena. This article focuses on an alternate model of reservation for women with key amendments to the People’s Representation Act. This paper aims to what are the government’s pros and cons of women’s reservation and why this bill was passed in parliament. The author of this research paper will present their finding in this regard, duly supported by secondary data.
