Promoting Women’s Political Leadership and Governance in India and South Asia
PDF File Size: 3.67 MB | Download   
There is growing momentum among governments and civil society to foster and ensure women’s participation and leadership in the political arena, and specifically within local governance structures. Establishing quotas for ­women’s representation at different levels of government has been a ­strategic ­ tactic in achieving this goal in many countries. In India, the constitution (73rd Amendment Act), enacted in 1992, mandated the reservation of a minimum of one-third of seats for women (both as members and as chairpersons) within all of I­ndia’s l­ocally ­ elected governance bodies commonly referred to as Panchayati Raj Institutions (PRIs). The amendment also entrusted panchayats with the responsibility of furthering the agenda of economic development and social justice.
