The Commonwealth Women Parliamentarians (CWP)


The CWP was founded by women delegates at the 1989 plenary conference so women at future conferences could discuss ways to increase female representation in Parliament and work towards the mainstreaming of gender considerations in all CPA activities and programmes. In 2004, the group was formally recognized in the CPA Constitution and its elected Chairperson added to the CPA Executive Committee.  A Steering Committee of 10 Members plans its activities. The current Chair in Office is the Hon. Alix Boyd Knights, MHA, Speaker of the House of Assembly, Dominica.
