It is generally observed that almost all high level jobs are done by men. Does it mean that the government should encourage a certain percentage of these jobs to be reserved for women? Do you agree or disagree with this proposition?

It seems unusual but true because almost all high level and top position jobs are generally entrusted to men and not to women. However, I believe that reserving any proportion of top level jobs for women is not a wise proposition.
Introducing reservation for women in t0p level positions has plenty of disadvantages. First, such reservation will prevent deserving candidates from serving at higher posts. This will certainly create great frustration and disappointment in their minds. For example, in India, the system of reservation exists in civil services and in many other government sectors. This has generated huge discontent in the minds of government employees.
Second, such a system can bring incompetent candidates at important positions. As a result of this, it can hinder growth of the organization, which ultimately leads to a negative impact on the economy of the country. Finally, a top level team comprised of some incompetent and some competent candidates cannot work with synergy and this can lead to hazardous results.
On the other hand, those who favor reservation for women argue that such a system lets women work with confidence and will brings sense of equality in them. They also add that women working at entry level positions shall get inspired by seeing other women .in higher positions and this will encourage them to improve their own performance.
Finally, it is true that reserving seats for women in top level jobs may offer good opportunities to them. However, barring deserving candidates by reserving seats for the other gender will certainly have some unfortunate effects on the corporate sector. Hence, I think the government must not implement reservation for women in top level jobs.
