Gender as basis of decisions making: Women in judiciary and grass root level democracy
The paper runs on the lines of equality as promised by the constitution of India. The judiciary lacks number of judges and equality. The gender basis is in the ratio of 28:3. It is high time that women should be out of the private sphere and be the decision makers. We analyse this with the help of not only the courts but the original decision makers, Panchayats of India. We will see how typically in India the society affects law and how law affects the society. The paper not only reads on with the success and failure case studies of various women who have been decision makers but critically analyse them achieve a result that will help in betterment of the situation. The philosophical point of view of this paper goes down to the very jurisprudential question of exiting of a law, relating the private and public sphere and how the problem in hand actually starts at home when gender bias is normalized in our minds. Article 15(3) of the constitution which gives special privileges to women and question of reservation is also discussed in the paper, the question is do they really solve the problem. The paper runs on real life examples because gender bias can’t be solved without going to the core of the society itself.
