New web portal launched for Women’s Rights and Laws

In order to improve coordination amongst all provincial caucuses and to disseminate information on women’s laws and their legislative activities, the Women Parliamentary Caucus (WPC) has created a web portal. The National Conference of Women’s Parliamentary Caucus, which was held in Islamabad was hosted by the WPC under the Pakistan Institute of Parliament Serves (PIPS), saw the unveiling of the “Women’s Rights and Laws” portal.

According to a press release, the web portal would connect the women’s caucuses of all four provincial assemblies, as well as the Gilgit Baltistan and Azad Kashmir Assembly, and would provide comprehensive information on laws and policies proposed by and geared toward women.

Speaking to the Women’s Rights and Laws portal gathering, Raja Pervez Ashraf, Speaker of the National Assembly, said that women’s emancipation was essential for the development of the nation.

The NA speaker acknowledged the importance of women in helping the nation advance but asserted that without women’s participation in politics, business, and the legal system, development would remain a bizarre concept.

He continued by saying that women had always struggled tirelessly to make long-lasting changes in the lives of other women and that they had always been crucial in forging inter-provincial ties.
