Democracy envisages that legitimacy of the power to make decisions about people's lives, society and their country should be derived from a choice by those who will be affected. Although women share half apportion of the global population, they are excluded from making decisions of their choice. As a result, women at every socio-political level are underrepresented and far removed from the decision-making process, holding merely about 16 percent of the parliamentary seats in the world. Increasing women's participation in politics and securing their access to politics
are of particular importance for development and sustainability of any democratic nation. While the debate about enfranchise and participation of women in decision making often focuses on issues of justice, equity and human rights, the representation of women and inclusion of their perspective and experience into the decision making process will inevitably lead to solutions that are more viable and satisfy a broader range of society. There are many challenges for women to attain the decision making positions.
