RELIGION, ETHNICITY AND GENDER PARITY: A FIGHT AGAINST UNDER-REPRESENTATION

Abstract

 

In a world, where the course of current and future national and international affairs is a derived impact of the decisions of the International Adjudicating and Monitoring bodies, it is rather appalling to see that representation of women at the International Bench is considered highly impertinent. The decisions of these bodies, act as commandments shaping the landscape of our future generations, despite this enlightenment the representation of women at these International Institutions remains immoderately minimal. This paper seeks to analyze the current state of gender disparity at the international bench, rooting from the barriers and social hostilities posed by religion at the national level. Gender disparity emerging from religious bigotry being the focal point of this paper, I aim to highlight India’s nominal representation at the International level.
