Woman power

The talk of every town today is the U.S. Presidential election. While Donald Trump has been the joker of the election, Hillary Clinton is also in the race. There are talks that shehas a higher probability to be the next President of United States. If is elected to power, she will be the first women President of that country. I also read in an article that if she is elected 2 major powerful countries will like US and UK will be ruled by a woman. It is true, but for your information it is just not those 2 countries that are ruled by women. There are 22 other countries where women is in power as a President or Prime Minister.23158392405_d3e3b60cb8_o

As far as my understanding none of these women have come through the women reservation. I really do not understand why in India alone women need the 33% reservation. Why can’t the content on open quota and take more than 33%?
I appreciate women coming to power but I am really dead against this 33% reservation for women. My ward in India is reserved for women. So we have a woman councillor for our ward. We invited her for our apartment function to open the recreation centre that was built by the owners association. The only work she did without help was cutting the ribbon. When we asked her to talk a few words, she could not talk!!. Some one asked the question “What has been done for women empowerment in the ward?”. Well she turned back and looked at her husband who was seated in the stage. He took the mike and spoke about the various initiatives done and that are in pipeline. She was more a rubber stamp, the actual work was done by her husband. In this case, why does she need to hold the post?

Woman like to come to power should get to that position with their own effort and not by reservation. Else it would spoil India like the backward class reservation.
