TO GO WITH AFP STORY 'India-politics-women,FOCUS' by Penny MacRae (FILES) In this photograph taken on May 13, 2011, All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) party general secretary and former movie star J. Jayalalitha waves to supporters standing on the balcony of her residence in Chennai. More women than ever are holding powerful political roles in India after two female regional leaders scored massive victories in state assembly elections. Their wins doubled the number of female state chief ministers and meant that women now rule a third of the 1.2 billion population in India, where girls are often still seen as a liability and female foeticide has skewed gender ratios. Jayalalitha staged a huge comeback to oust a rival regional party enmeshed in corruption allegations. AFP PHOTO/Dibyangshu SARKAR/FILES (Photo credit should read DIBYANGSHU SARKAR/AFP/Getty Images)
