In an ideal world the quota should be removed! The quota is an insult, actually. Treating women as politically handicapped individuals is clear discrimination. But then again, we live in the real world where a lot of men – trying not to generalize – regard women as inferior beings unfit for power or politics. So yes, there has to be a quota but it has to be 50 percent – we are after all half the society. Out of the 50 percent women, we can say 10 percent farmers, 10 percent laborers, 10 percent Muslim Brotherhood group, etc.
Without the quota, can any woman win? If the labor office removes the 5 percent handicapped employment rate in companies, how many physically challenged people would be able to get jobs?
