INLW (International Network of Liberal Women) is an association of women from countries worldwide who support the Liberal principles.

We aim to improve women’s awareness of their political rights and responsibilities.

We advance participation of liberal women in politics at local, national and international levels and within liberal parties worldwide.

We campaign: to eliminate all practices and laws which impede women’s hopes of a full life; to equal access to education; for employment and property, and against discriminatory marriage and parental rights laws.

INLW is a member of Liberal International. We send representatives to the UN Conferences as NGO with Special Consultative Status: i.e. to the UN ECOSOC Commission on the Status of Women, to the UN Human Rights Council and UN DPI/NGO Conferences etc.

INLW organizes meetings during the Congresses of Liberal International and during CSW and in other countries where liberal parties are active.

You can support INLW by becoming a member. Some countries have local Chapters.
