Best way to empower women in India is by having the UCC (uniform civil code: one law for everyone, irrespective of gender, caste, religion) and not through gender based reservations

Politicians want women to think that their condition will improve through Govt. quotas and reservations, but that is quite misleading. 
 
In reality, most of the woes for women, including their not having the same legal rights as men and also lagging behind not only the men in their own community but also the women in certain other communities, are rooted in their living under the archaic and gender-specific religious / community laws which originally were sanctioned officially by the Govt. and presently continue to draw support from politicians and Govt.
 
Thus, rather than helping a small segment of Indian women through Govt. quotas in education and jobs, politicians should instead try to improve the condition of women all over India and in all walks of life and ensure them the same legal rights as men. To this end, politicians need to campaign and work for the immediate implementation of a gender-neutral UCC (Uniform Civil Code: one law for everyone, irrespective of religion, race, caste and gender) and get rid of the current multiple, archaic and gender-biased religious / community laws.
