WPC is committed to the development of women’s empowerment: Munaza

ISLAMABAD: The Women’s Parliamentary Caucus (WPC) has recently taken various productive steps to foster the development and empowerment of women so that they can live in society with dignity.

Speaking to APP, WPC Chair Munaza Hassan said, “The role of women in democratic governance and sustainable development is essential in all processes and at all levels. In this regard, the Women’s Parliamentary Caucus (WPC) is a cross-party forum and nerve center for women parliamentarians, and can make a significant contribution”.

The role of women in democratic governance and sustainable development is essential in all processes and at all levels. In this regard, the Women’s Parliamentary Caucus (WPC) is a cross-party forum and nerve center for women parliamentarians and can make a significant contribution.

She said that in September 2018, the WPC entered its third term, in which we hope to make this non-partisan forum more dynamic, strategic and beneficial for the women of Pakistan.

She said the WPC will work to enable women parliamentarians to optimally play substantive and effective roles in the sustainable development of our beautiful nation. Through this forum, regardless of our political affiliations, we would like to come together to give voice to our disadvantaged women, solve their problems and empower them economically, socially and politically at all levels.

To this end, we will strengthen our partnership with provincial women’s caucuses to work together as representatives of these women.

We will further strengthen our alliances with national and provincial women’s commissions, as well as with civil society and key ministries and departments to achieve our mandate.

I assure you that members of the Women’s Parliamentary Caucus (WPC) wish to work together on key issues for the wider interest and benefit of vulnerable groups in our society, she added.

“We will not only try to keep you up to date on the performance of our women parliamentarians and the Caucus in the best possible way”.
