New Delhi, Mar 8: Politics for long has been a bastion of males and it’s not very easy for any woman to make her presence felt in Indian political arena.



In a country like India, it becomes even more difficult for a female politician as caste, creed and religion play decisive role in Indian politics.

Modern India has witnessed emergence of many such female politicians. Let’s have a look at 10 such outstanding female politicians of India who have broken the tradition myths and proved that a female can be as good a politician as a male.
