In the past week, India had made a historic move by passing the Women’s Reservation Bill, also known as the ‘Nari Shakti Vandan Adhiniyam’. This bill reserves one-third (1/3) of the seats in both the lower house, and state assemblies for women. Many international bodies, including the United Nations, have praised India’s step towards a more progressive and inclusive law, which ensures women’s inclusion in the building of democracy. Popular influencer Aashika Bhatia, last seen in Bigg Boss OTT 2, shares her thoughts on the approval of the Women’s Reservation Bill.
Talking about the historic move India has made, Aashika shares,
“The approval of the Women’s Reservation Bill has been widely celebrated as a significant step towards gender equality. It has positively impacted society by ensuring greater representation, and empowerment for women in the political sphere. This historic change has opened doors for women to actively participate in decision-making processes, and contribute to shaping the future of the nation.”
As India takes steps towards a brighter future, and sets a good example for gender equality in politics, it is reassuring to see a youth icon like Aashika Bhatia talking about such an important and positive change like the Women’s Reservation Bill.
