A law that has been reintroduced in India which would reserve a third of all seats in the national parliament and state legislatures for women. Its progress is being delayed by protests today in the upper house. It again raises the issue of whether women require this kind of assistance to achieve the same success and power as men. (And an interesting bit of context to this story is that it was original proposed back in 1996 and 14 years in clearly some Indians still feel it’s very necessary.)
Would you like similar legislation in your country? Maybe you’d like laws to insist on the number of women a business employees, or the number of women granted places at university.
Or this about a difference in ambition between men and women, or at least a difference in priorities? Do we show a bias towards men when we define success in terms of politics and money?
