    Tara Krishnaswamy: Are Women Interested and Winnable in Politics?

    While the 2019 Lok Sabha Elections in India registered the largest percentage of elected women representatives so far, it still stands at 14%. The major reason for such a small percentage is because national political parties still don’t end up giving party tickets to women contenders and the reason why this percentage even grew into a double digit is because state parties like Biju Janta Dal led by Naveen Patnaik and Trinamool Congress led by Mamata Banerjee announced more than one third tickets to it’s women candidates and together brought the highest number of female MPs in the parliament. Political Shakti’s Tara Krishnaswamy has been leading massive citizen-led campaigns to make parties accountable for low women’s representation in politics and busting myths around women’s interest and winnability in politics. Among these two, women’s winnability has been often shared by political parties as an excuse to give lesser polling tickets to women. Watch her bust some myths around these in our second episode of Women in Governance with Tara Krishnaswamy. (Interviewed and produced by Poorvi Gupta, video edited by Tanvi Nang)
