Keywords: India, gender equality, corruption, good governance


India is a country in the Asian region with the second largest population in the world after China. Its economic growth, which has reached 6 to 7 percent over the last 10 years, has made India one of the developing countries with a very fast-growing economy. But unfortunately, behind this rapid economic growth, India has an old issue that continues to haunt behind it, namely the issue of gender equality and corruption. These two issues continue to overshadow Indian politics and are the main reason for the rise of other social issues such as poverty, unemployment, weak government systems, and loss of women's rights in one of the largest democracies in the world. This paper will describe the indicators of gender inequality and corruption which have resulted in the obstruction of the achievement of good governance in India. The importance of gender equality and assertiveness in eradicating corruption cases will be explained in this paper as a form of advice for achieving good governance in the country, especially in India.
