In this article attention is being paid to the insistence on and the policy of larger representation of women in politics and the extent to which this has been realised in the new dispensation. The contribution of women, especially in senior positions, since 1994, is also evaluated. Phenomenal progress concerning the number of women participating in government on all levels, has indeed been made. In each election more women came to the fore. The question is, however, posed by some whether democracy is being served by giving preference to forced equality above freedom and whether merit should not always be the criterium.
