Ab Hai Meri Baari
अब है मेरी बारी is a campaign directed towards an equal opportunity to women representation in the political sphere. Shilpi, the chairperson of WATER, supports the cause extensively and promotes that if Indian women can be successful everywhere, they have the right to represent themselves on the political front.
There is sufficient research to prove that women leaders have proven to be better administrators, have brought more changes and have shown better results in terms of economics or general well-being.
Through the ‘ Ab hai meri Baari’ campaign, WATER endorses that equal rights are given to women candidates to run in elections. Their winnability should not be judged on the gender but on the amount of work they have done and how much more they are capable of doing.
It is our endeavour to help bring in a bill that gives equal opportunity to women to be able to participate and perform in electoral politics. After all, we have sufficient examples even in Indian history to support this cause.
If women in history and in modern politics have already proved their mettle, it is high time we stopped them from coming out in full bloom and proving their worth through their work in ministerial roles.
