By Express News ServiceKOCHI: Active participation of women and youth in politics is generally low in India.
Since women, as per gender statistics, constitute more than half of the population, this is a serious shortcoming for our society.
Federica Vinci, one of the founders of the political party Volt Europa, a pan-European progressive political movement, made the observation while speaking to reporters here on Wednesday.
“The youth who are awaiting a change in the country should try and continue with their struggle for the same,” said Vinci the president of Volt Italia, a part of Volt Europa.
She started Volt Italia in 2017 to bring concrete change in society instead of simply running for elections.
