In the Indian context, quotas for women's reservation have resulted in more women being included in local self-governing organisations, but they are still excluded by the male-dominated political power structure. In the socio-political order, even elected women MPs remain mute bystanders. Women's reservation, it should be noted, has failed to remove certain important barriers, such as local electoral campaign finance, numerous imbalances between family life and politics, difficulty attending meetings, and so on. Women's reservations, on the other hand, have the ability to kick-start other processes of female empowerment. In other words, political representation for women might be viewed as a prerequisite for their empowerment. More women in politics is also seen to improve the quality of politics. In the Indian sociopolitical context, politics was formerly thought to be a male-dominated realm. Women's political engagement is now expected to be accompanied with less dirty and corrupt politics, particularly in democratic countries like India.

Keywords : political empowerment, constitutional rights, discrimination, exclusion, women reservation.
