A new party, a new leader – Is this the new face of women’s participation in politics?

Dr. Nowhera Shaik, the President of the new formed party MEP – Justice for Humanity, claims that she intends to elevate the position of women by giving them the right platform to become independent. The Indian scenario of women empowerment, she believes, is a facade (the bill for 33% reservation for women not being passed, being the prime example) and this can fall off only when the mentality of the people towards women and their abilities change. Contrary to people’s perception that religion asks men to suppress women, neither religion nor constitution calls for women to be suppressed and this is exactly what Dr. Shaik is working towards achieving. Dr. Shaik plans on doing this by building extra police stations for women, providing free education from primary education to Post Graduation for women and much more.
