Indian women constitute around half percentage of the total population, yet in 2014 Lok Sabha elections only 66 women managed to win the elections. In India’s parliament after attaining the Independence there were only 22 women representatives and in last 72 years we have only extended this by 42 more. The alarming picture of women’s contribution at the top most level of Legislation should take their attention amid the political parties and politicians. The two biggest parties of India that is Bhartiya Janata Party and Congress manifest a dedication towards allotting 33% of the seats in Legislative body and state assemblies for women which sometimes seems as a rarely discussed agenda after when parties come in power.

The live case of Jhansi district of Uttar Pradesh explains the patriarchal dominance explains the women’s inability to exercise their Right to Vote. There is a disparity of 21 percent amid both sexes literacy in Bundelkhand revealed by 2011 report.  The imbalance is higher than the national rate of 17%. In Jhansi District the distinction is of 22% and almost 30% girls are untouched by the light of Education.

Women in most regions of Bundelkhand lives in firm patriarchal society which even connects them with grandeur and family esteem, represses them and forces them to be unseen and protected. Higher female infanticide and women class are rarely permitted to pursue their studies. Harassment rate against women is considerably higher than the rest parts of UP.  A woman in Mauranipur told that women in the present scenario still cast their vote according to the advice given by their men or in laws which suggests that Education in India still needs to widen its reach especially for dominated female class in order to have equality.
