Cabinet approves Women's Reservation Bill

Cabinet approves Women's Reservation Bill

The Union Cabinet has approved the Women's Reservation Bill providing 33 per cent reservation to women in Parliament and State Legislative Assemblies.  

The Bill is likely to come in this session of Parliament.


The Cabinet, chaired by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh met in New Delhi Thursday evening and discussed the Bill sent back to it by the Standing Committee and approved it in the form that it has come back in.


The Bill has already been introduced in the Rajya Sabha in 2008 and it is a property of the Rajya Sabha.


It is now for the Business Advisory Committee to decide when the Bill will be introduced in the Lok Sabha, the sources said.


A delegation of Joint Parliament Committee on women empowerment had met President Pratibha Devisingh Patil and urged her to direct the Government to hold the discussion on the Bill on 8th March in Parliament to mark the International Women's Day centenary celebrations.


The controversial Bill has been delayed for past 12 years as many of the opposition parties like the Samajwadi Party and Janata Dal (United) had been demanding a sub-quota for OBC women.

Dear Venkat, even without reservations, look at the Political scenario, the country is already dominated by the women tribes and once this reservation passed through the Parliament we male tribes are likely to be slave of the women tribe.We have to note the fact of our Ecellency Madam Prathiba sitting solemnly up there as the President and the most powerful woman in the World Madam Sonia smilingly standing behind our PM like Laloo Prasad behind Rabri Devi and now Women reservations that also armed with the Legal weapon like DVA and NWC etc. Time for the male tribes to ponder over all these development in the country.

All are equal in the eye of law. No discrimination based on s*x.......! !

I do not agree with 33%, it’s not considerable,

Why not the bill be as reservation 50:50 instead of 33 %,

As many political parties are supporting women reservation, we should understand what women reservation means. Just to understand what a feminist politician will speak in parliament, I am quoting a few notable quotes of feminism:
"The nuclear family must be destroyed... Whatever its ultimate meaning, the break-up of families now is an objectively revolutionary process." -- Linda Gordon
"I feel that 'man-hating' is an honorable and viable political act, that the oppressed have a right to class-hatred against the class that is oppressing them." -- Robin Morgan, Ms. Magazine Editor.
"To call a man an animal is to flatter him; he's a machine, a walking dildo." -- Valerie Solanas, Authoress of the SCUM Manifesto
"The male is a domestic animal which, if treated with firmness...can be trained to do most things." -- Jilly Cooper, SCUM (Society For Cutting Up Men, started by Valerie Solanas)
"I want to see a man beaten to a bl**dy pulp with a high-heel shoved in his mouth, like an apple in the mouth of a pig." -- Andrea Dworkin
"All men are rapists and that's all they are" -- Marilyn French, Authoress; (later, advisoress to Al Gore's Presidential Campaign.)
Indian men should prepare themselves to hear such chanting in parliament too. The enslavement of men will be complete with reservation of women.
