Women Empowerment Policy Dialogue Series

The SEW-EGAP Women Empowerment Policy Dialogue Series 2015 was a Project for women empowerment to analyse the position of women in Pakistan through a Women Empowerment Dialogue Series under the theme:

‘Process of Women Empowerment in Pakistan: Challenges & Achievements’.

The SEW-EGAP Executive Council Lahore Working Committee along with the Senior Executive Members of the Lahore Chapter met regularly to discuss and analyse the process of women empowerment and the current position of women in the Pakistani society, in order to document findings and make recommendations to the government.

Eminent experts in the relevant fields were invited to speak at the weekly dialogues on:

1. Women in Education
2. Women & Disability
3. Women in Development
4. Women in Peace
5. Women in Democracy
6. Women in Corporate Governance

Opinion makers were invited to shed light on the present position of women in our society and to recommend a way forward for the empowerment of women.

These were interactive series of focal group discussions (FGD) where all participants were encouraged to participate and get equal opportunity to speak and have their opinions recorded for further reporting. The purpose of these discussions was to measure the level of capacity building required in our society to empower women and to streamline the efforts of women as significant work within in the community.
