Development economist Devaki Jain defends the Women’s Reservation Bill in its present form, saying, “The impact of the women’s quota at the panchayat level hints at what the Women’s Reservation Bill can do.”

With this, the PSW Weblog will begin a long overdue series of posts logging important discussions of the proposed Women’s Reservation Bill and its provisions.

    • although i hv already published a post onmy blog related to this matter from knowledge garnered from newspapers nd TV apart from websites, the true original draft is long overdue.

  1. Hi,
    Do you know where I can find the actual bill…been unsuccessful in finding it anywhere.

    I think an objective conversation must start with women reading the actual bill. I’m seeing a lot of opinions on the subject, and wondering how many of them have actually read the bill.
