Under their umbrella body Commonwealth Women Parliamentarians (CWP), the group will thereafter come up with resolutions that will be made part of, and adopted along with those of the mainstream Commonwealth Parliamentary Association Conference.
Founded in 1989, the Commonwealth Women Parliamentarians, provides opportunities for women legislators to discuss ways on how to increase women representation in parliament and work towards mainstreaming of the gender considerations in all Commonwealth Parliamentary Association activities and programmes.
The CWP was formally recognised in the CPA Constitution in 2004 and its elected chairperson added to the CPA Executive Committee.
