Everyone, regardless of race, colour, sex, language, religion, birth, or another status, is born free and equal in dignity and rights, and everyone has the right to all rights and freedoms. Women, on the other hand, have historically been treated as second-class citizens in practically all countries across the world. Despite the fact that the Indian Constitution promises equal opportunity, women’s presence in legislative bodies and political activity at all levels is minimal. These rights are still only available for women on a de jure basis rather than in practice. Women’s political engagement in India is a complicated issue impacted by a variety of circumstances. This study discusses the psychological, socioeconomic, and political issues that prevent women from entering politics. This study draws on a variety of sources, including books and articles, to support these elements. Furthermore, the study concludes that equal participation of both genders is not only a need for democracy but also for the upliftment of marginalized communities, including women.
