The historic Women's Reservation Bill -- Nari Shakti Vandan Adhiniyam -- to provide 33 per cent quota in Lok Sabha and state assemblies has been passed in Lok Sabha. It's the first bill which was tabled in the New Parliament building and was passed to empower women in the country's electoral process.
The bill was passed after a day-long debate with 454 votes in favour and two against it. It will be tabled in Rajya Sabha on Thursday.
