Despite the street protests over attacks on women in India in recent years, issues of violence, gender and women's representation have been largely lost in the election campaign, argues Swati Parashar.
Under the law, quotas for female representation in Indonesia appear remarkably progressive. In reality, the political realm is still hard going for women, Lily Yulianti Farid explains.
The violent masculinity and lack of civility in this campaign have shattered any illusions of a changing public discourse about women's rights in India, says Swati Parashar.
Dr Swati Parashar reviews the recent Indian elections and gives her thoughts on how issues of gender equality were handled.
