Abstract

The experience of a small experiment undertaken by the Mahila Samakhya programme in Karnataka, which attempted to find solutions to the problems raised by women's participation in the panchayat raj institutions as a result of reservation policy shows that women's participation in government may serve to transform the culture and functioning of local government institutions.
