Apro­pos ‘A Lit­tle Help From Our Men’ by Elizabeth Brod­er­ick (Aug 10). Rep­re­sen­ta­tion of women on the boards of In­dian com­pa­nies still lags, de­spite the rule that com­pa­nies listed on the In­dian stock mar­kets must en­list one women. The same has been the case in Par­lia­ment where the women’s reser­va­tion Bill has been pend­ing for years. The con­tri­bu­tion of women (read home­mak­ers) to the coun­try’s GDP has not been a topic of re­search. The need is also for a change in the hyp­o­crit­i­cal at­ti­tude to­wards women and that, in turn, calls for a change in so­ci­ety’s mind­set.
