Indian Women Protest Parliament
The women came out in full living color at a New Delhi protest of the government on reservations for women in Parliament:
Hundreds of women protesters demanded Manmohan Singh’s government to announce reservations for women in all legistative bodies.
“We appeal to you to make a clean break with this attitude which smacks of not only gender insensitivity but insensitivity to the process of making democracy more inclusive and vibrant. We would request you to place the Bill for a thorough discussion in Parliament and to ensure that a vote is taken on it. If this is done with sincerity, the enactment of the Bill will become a reality,” the memorandum said.
