    Lok Sabha poll results show womens representation a lofty goal

    The 2024 Lok Sabha elections in India revealed a complex narrative on womens representation in Indian politics. Despite more women candidates, the number of women elected to the lower house slightly decreased. The strike rate for women candidates, which refers to the number of seats won per 100 seats contested, was approximately 9.3% in this election, a decline from the 11.7% in the previous election.
