Girls and women have a right to participate in civil society, vote in elections, be elected to government office, serve on boards, and make their voices heard in any process that will ultimately affect them, their families, and their communities. Asserting in girls’ and women’s right to political participation is a necessary step to achieving global gender equality and democratic governance. Increasing the share of women in India’s state legislative assemblies is not only likely to lead to better representation of women’s and children’s concerns in policy-making, it is also likely to lead to higher economic growth. A woman’s place is in politics. Importance and development of democracy through women participation in politics must be planted by equal participation of men and women in the field of politics so that the decision making will be refined. It would really be appreciating if the government allows women in all form of politics and thus women push their scales to speak out for everything.
