Women in politics: Breaking barriers

As early as 1966, India elected a female prime minister, becoming only the second country in the world to do so.

More than fifty years later, more women are joining politics but their number still remains low.

Female leaders regularly battle gender stereotypes, prejudices and sexist trolling.

In this edition of WorklifeIndia, we speak to a transgender politician, a student leader, and a television presenter who took to politics, and ask them how politics can be made more inclusive for women.

Presenter: Devina Gupta Contributors: Apsara Reddy, transwoman and a leader of the Congress party; Shazia Ilmi, spokesperson, Bharatiya Janata Party; Kawalpreet Kaur, student leader.
