MMA - KAS Virtual Conference on “Women & Politics”

The Madras Management Association & the India Office of the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung (KAS) are organizing an interactive virtual video conference on the topic "Women & Politics" on Thursday, 18th June 2020 at 18:00 Hrs On Zoom Platform.


Although, women have held the posts of president and prime minister in India as well as chief ministers of various states, however when it comes to women in politics and their involvement in real decision making process, the power still lies with the men barring a few exceptions of course.



India currently ranks 20th from the bottom in terms of representation of women in Parliament in the World. If we look at numbers of women at leadership positions then we have:



                            Women               Men


Lok Sabha           78                      176


Rajya Sabha       20                      220


and the numbers of women MLA's are even worse. This means that women in politics still remain invisible or there are underlying interconnected barriers that restrict their growth and visibility in a male dominated environment.
