In this regard, the Women’s Parliamentary Caucus (WPC) is a cross-party forum and a nerve center for women parliamentarians and can contribute tremendously.

Through this forum, regardless of our political affiliations, we would like to join hands to give voice to our disadvantaged women, address their issues, and empower them economically, socially, and politically at all levels. For this purpose, we shall reinforce our partnership with provincial women’s caucuses to work together as representatives of these women. We shall further strengthen our alliances with national and provincial women commissions, as well as civil society and key ministries and departments to achieve our mandate. I assure you that members of the Women’s Parliamentary Caucus (WPC) are keen to work together on key issues for the larger interest and benefit of vulnerable groups of our society, she added. “We will not only try to keep you optimally updated on the performance of our women parliamentarians and the Caucus”.
