2. Advance the empowerment of all women worldwide.
3. Expand participation of liberal women in politics at local, national and international levels and within liberal parties worldwide.
4. Strengthen relationships and exchange information between liberal women worldwide.
5. Encourage liberal women to promote liberal values and spread the liberal ideas worldwide: Individual freedom, human rights, the rule of law, tolerance, equality of opportunity, social justice, free trade and market economy.

We campaign
In support of all women Liberals worldwide who are seeking decision-making positions in local, national and international, political, judicial and NGO organisations.
To eliminate all practices and laws which impede women’s hopes of a full life, such as:
damage and physical constraints imposed by religious and civic customs.
Denial of equal access to education, employment and property.
Discriminatory marriage and parental rights laws.
