The Power of Political Equality

In political processions and protest rallies, women are often at the forefront. But their participation at the policy-making level is limited. With the upcoming general elections, the women's movement continues to lobby for increased women's seats in Parliament through direct election. Patriarchal politics and lack of strong political will, however, act as major barriers to significant participation of women in the political arena.
