CWP - 66th Commonwealth Parliamentary Conference
What is the Commonwealth Women Parliamentarians (CWP) network?
The Commonwealth Women Parliamentarians (CWP) is the network of women Members of the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association’s Parliaments and Legislatures. The network's mission is to promote the representation of women in CPA Branches and women's full and equal participation in all political and parliamentary leadership at all levels.
Will there be a CWP Conference at the 66th CPC?
The CWP network will not host a Conference at the 66th Commonwealth Parliamentary Conference.
The CWP Conference is only held once every three years. The most recent CWP Conference was held in Halifax, Canada, in August 2022 at the 65th Commonwealth Parliamentary Conference, under the theme of ‘#BreaktheBias: Gender Equality Today for a Sustainable Tomorrow’.
The next CWP Conference will therefore be held at the 68th Commonwealth Parliamentary Conference in 2025.
What CWP activities will take place at the 66th CPC?
Several CWP meetings and related activities have been confirmed for the 66th CPC. Other activities aligned to the strategic objectives of the network may be added a later date.
- CWP Steering Committee Meeting
- CWP Business Meeting
- CPC Workshop B: Gender quotas in Parliament - a means to an end?
- CPA and UN Women side event: Mapping discriminatory laws across the Commonwealth
