Today's Confusing Scenario
Recently SEBI talked of somewhat called women reservation. They meant to reserve a seat for a women candidate on a director’s position in every company. Although, it seems to be a good step in empowering women but is it really so?? The question here arises whether this reservation is valid or not?
Let’s see the current scenario. Women today are considered to be matching shoulders with men in every field whether it is economics, teaching, medical, engineering, sports, or any other. The Forbes magazine publishes the name of top 100 most influential people of the world. This list of 2014 involves many people from India out of which women are also there. The director of the state bank of India mrs. Arundhati bhattacharya has her name enlisted.
Back to the topic, women reservation for top posts of the company is advantageous as it focuses on women empowerment but at the other hand, it can’t be ignored that reservation is for those who don’t have the resources or can’t face the competition.
At one point we say women are all equal to men but at the other hand you are providing them that reservation which may prove them less capable. It may be viewed in a way that women can’t the competition of being the head of a company.
For some, it may give a boost to their senses but at the deeper end, look wisely, is it really so?
