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.

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.
