Anwesha Gupta because "overwhelming proportion of women" is plural subject and therefore demands plural verb. If constructions such as proportion of, percentage of, fraction of, attach themselves to a plural noun, they tend to serve as plural. But, if they attach themselves to singular nouns, the behave as singular.
