Those in favour of the motion mainly emphasised on the fact that women are now getting represented in every field of life and embarked on the names of successful women such as PV Sindhu , Geeta Phogat,Pratibha Patil whereas as those against mainly argued that if a miniscule section of women is able to get representation,it doesn’t mean that women are well represented in India.This section focused not only on taking into account rural women’s misery which are still not recognised in mainstream society , but also the problems faced by women when they start working in the corporations and public realm.A very interesting argument was that¬†songs like ‘chikni chameli’,’gandi baat’ are demoralising the value of youth and are depicting females as a material object.
