In the upcoming CA election, some constituencies should be reserved for women by forging consensus, among political parties. 
Each political party should ensure at least 33% inclusive participation of women in their manifestos. 
Electoral education and election related equipment, places as well as overall managerial aspects should be made gender friendly.
The concept and slogan of equal rights to women in every sector must be reflected in political, social, economic, education and culture etc. The state should make a strict policy of monitoring and evaluation for the effectiveness of this policy.
