Women Congress leaders on Thursday shouted slogans outside Parliament over Women's Reservation Bill. 

MP Sushmita Dev, who participated in the protest, challenged PM Narendra Modi to bring the bill for 33 per cent reservation for women in Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha. "Modi ji never listens, we want women's reservation bill. Modi ji must bring daughters in the House," Dev said.

"We need women at all levels, including the top, to change the dynamic, reshape the conversation, to make sure women's voices are heard and heeded, not overlooked and ignored," All India Mahila Congress said on Twitter. 

Earlier in the day, Congress MP Rajni Patil and Renuka Chowdhury had given zero hour notice in Rajya Sabha over the issue of 33 per cent reservation for women in Parliament.
