In this episode of The Roundtable we are discussing women & power play. What is the role of women in politics and which party is doing its bit to encourage women. Recently, BJP appointed Nirmala Sitharaman as the Defence Minister; breaking the glass ceiling she became India’s first full-time defence minister. However, the panel on The Roundtable didn’t seem optimistic and said she would just be following the orders from PMO. Though women have broken the glass ceiling in every other profession but it’s not so in politics.

Well to discuss all this we are joined by an eminent panel including Neerja Chowdhury, Political Analyst; Siddharth Varadarajan, Founding Editor of TheWire.in; Arati Jerath, Political Analyst; and Dilip Cherian, Image Guru in conversation with our Senior Executive Editor, Priya Sahgal.
