The National Women’s Parliament (NWP) is a unique platform that provides a space for women from diverse backgrounds to come together and share their experiences, knowledge, and research in the area of women’s social, economic, and political empowerment. The NWP brings together women from various fields including politics, the social sector, education, sports, corporate, media, arts and culture, judiciary, and young aspiring girl students. This is intended towards bridging the inequalities and strengthening the ability of women to make choices about their own lives.
Founded in 2017, the NWP has established itself as a structured and vibrant network of women and girls dedicated to promoting women’s liberation. With a policy document submitted to various women’s agencies, the NWP is committed to finding solutions to the challenges faced by women and promoting their participation in all aspects of society.
Despite being the largest democracy, women in Bharat still face many political, socio-economic, ideological, and psychological obstacles that prevent their equal participation in all spheres of life. Hence, the first NWP was a three-day conclave that connected women of diverse backgrounds and provided a platform for discussions, debates, and mentoring. It was initiated to remove these barriers and empower women to reach their full potential.
The NWP seeks to sensitise society about common issues such as malnutrition, social security, sexual harassment, gender-based discrimination, and more. By creating a network of women change-makers and young girls, NWP aspires to achieve great things. It ignites conversations, generates solutions for global and local women’s issues, inspires new ideas, and fosters social responsibility among young women in Bharat.
