Challenges faced by women leadership in politics

Author(s): Aradhana Sharma

Abstract: Gender equality and equal chances are necessary components of a just society, progress, and national and international security. A structural interventional strategy in social work seeks to promote gender empowerment via women's effective engagement in politics. The challenges that females encounter in Indian politics were discussed in this paper. The prime aim of this paper is to study the challenges faced by women leadership in politics. To achieve the aim of this paper, secondary sources of information was used. For this purpose various articles, case studies on women leadership in politics are selected and studied. This present paper found that patriarchal views, weak informal networks, finance, religion, and educational level are various challenges which are encountered by the Indian women. This paper discusses how to address these issues, like, the development of electoral reforms that promote equitable participation of females, the improvement of competency for women candidates in politics, elevated government assistance for women's representation in politics, and the use of social media and education to change society's attitudes. The paper conclude that, while India is still a long way from attaining the necessary 33 percent female representation in government, Indian women have a bright future in politics. The survival of Indian democracy requires a gender-balanced political leadership.
