Women's Day Events

An attempt by India's government to pass legislation reserving a third of all seats for women in parliament provoked uproar as opposition politicians forced repeated adjournments. The government had been confident that the Women Reservation Bill, which has been stalled for 14 years, would gather the required votes to pass in the upper house on Monday after being presented on International Women's Day.
