On behalf of honorable members of the Women Parliamentary Caucus (WPC), I welcome you to our official website.

After the general elections of 2018, Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaaf (PTI) Government is now in place. Our government is keen to scale new heights in establishing effectual democratic values and good governance in the country. It is our belief that the importance of women in attainment of these goals cannot be underestimated. The role of women in democratic governance and sustainable development is critical in all processes and at all levels. In this regard the Women Parliamentary Caucus (WPC) is a cross-party forum and a nerve centre for women parliamentarians, and can contribute tremendously.
