Question:

Did you protest when the book referred to the Prime Minister as ‘he’? Havewe not had a woman Prime Minister? Why should we assume that all theimportant positions are held by men?

Answer:

No, I did not protest when the book referred to the Prime Minister as 'he' because currently, in India the position of the PM is held by a male person i.e. Narendra Modi. Yes, we had a woman Prime Minister. Indira Gandhi was the first woman Prime Minister of India. She was a powerful and influential leader of India. So, we should not keep this notion that all the important positions can be occupied only by men, women too are capable enough for such high positions.
