ROLE OF WOMEN IN ERADICATION OF CORRUPTION It is a matter of shame that even after 63 years of independence, India figures among the thirty most corrupt countries. The virus of corruption has crept into all walks of life and it can endanger the body politic of our nation. Eradication of corruption should be the nation’s number-one priority in view of the ever-increasing horizon of political and administrative corruption and its baneful multifarious effects on the society-at-large.
It needs to be understood by all that eradication of corruption is only possible if strong political commitment exists. Without strong political commitment, bureaucratic reorientation and a vibrant and effective civil society, checking corruption turns into a very difficult almost impossible task As we are aware that now a days a big movement is taking place in our country led by Sh Anna Hazare to make a strong law against corruption, for making and implementing this strong law need very strong political will.
As far as role of women is concerned, If a women want they can change the society. Now, one more non cooperation movement is required in India that non cooperation of women against corrupt persons. Women should start non cooperating against their relative in family, they may be their son, father, husband etc. As Gandhiji movement had given us the freedom against British, I am sure this second version of non co-operation movement will also give us the freedom against the corruption.
A time when Gandhiji said, educate a woman and you educate a whole family, this is also true for if a woman becomes corrupt free, she can led to complete family corruption free. A long pending bill of 33% reservation is still pending in parliament. This bill will also help in eradication of corruption, after the implementation of this bill the participation of women will increasing in working place as well that will give more opportunity to women to make the working places like Government offices, politics corruption free.
