WomenPowerConnect serves as a network, membership-based organization with individual and institutional members from across all  states of the country. WPC was born out of the realization that despite substantial grassroots efforts, women’s organizations and groups in India lacked the co-ordination necessary to translate those efforts into legislative and policy outcomes necessary for true progress.

Although parliamentarians were interested in addressing women’s concerns, the information being supplied to them by grassroots organizations was vast and incoherent. A national level advocate was needed to bridge the gap between grassroots activism and policy outcomes. WPC arose as a unified voice for women’s organizations. It effectively and systematically advocates on women’s issues to the Indian parliament and government.

With WPC, the members can work to ensure that women’s rights advocates, organizations and movements continue to drive political, social and economic change to ensure rights for women and girl children.

As a WPC member, you join not only a large network of activists and organizations across the country, but also a worldwide women’s movement. As WPC members , you will receive:

  • A quarterly membership e-newsletter keeping you up to date on WPC news and events
  • Monthly updates on women issues in the country
