Talking about the mental shift, I think the formal education system is the right channel. The proposal to reserved qouta for women in parliament is only a fast track to creating 'equality' in our representative democracy.

Proponents of the proposal hold the view that democracy entails equal participation. Unfortunately that in itself will not always produce equality of outcome.

If I may say, what SI needs are effective & efficient institutions to implement and enforce laws & policies and not just mere numbers in politics.

Such "one-size-fits" ideals prescribed in CEDAW, which SI is a party, requires careful analysis & contextualisation.
