The silent Women revolution in India is they?

Mani Shankar Aiyar says “Over 40% women in local self government reflects a silent revolution in India

Then what is striking was “As many as 58 percent of the women representatives are now taking their own decisions to contest elections. 60% of the women respondents said they faced no gender discrimination in their work. 60-64% said their interaction with local officials had significantly increased since their election. And as many as 94% said they found no restrictions on their raising issues and making their comments in meetings of the local bodies and the Parliament of the People”.
