The Commonwealth Women Parliamentarians Africa Region is the network of women Members of CPA legislatures.

The CWP network provides a means of:

  • Building the capacity of women elected to parliament to be more effective in their roles;
  • Improving the awareness and ability of all parliamentarians, male and female, and encouraging them to include a gender perspective in all aspects of their role - legislation, oversight and representation;
  • Helping parliaments to become gender-sensitive institutions
