SC judge: Need more women for gender-neutral judiciary | India News

NEW DELHI: Supreme Court judge Justice B V Nagarathna, who will be the 54th Chief Justice of India and the first woman CJI in 2027, on Friday batted for appointment of more women judges.
Delivering 28th Justice Sunanda Bhandare Memorial Lecture on ‘Role of Judiciary in Empowerment of Indian Women‘, she said, “Having more women on the bench can contribute to a more effective space to deliver justice in India.I would point to only three reasons-one, for the credibility and legitimacy of courts; second, the language and vocabulary of the judgments; and third, the adminis-tration of courts and need of different experiences to ensure that courts become more gender-neutral spaces.”
Justice Nagarathna said women can get into the formal workforce but are often hindered from moving up in their field, just as in the legal profession, due to lack of sharing of household chores and the responsibility of bringing up kids. She said there cannot be subordination of women in a marriage. “Women have come a long way but we are yet to reach a point where a woman like a male colleague or father or brother or husband would be able to enjoy the satisfaction of having a secure and stable work life and healthy family,” she said.
