From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

A women's wing is an organisation affiliated with a political party that consists of that party's female membership or acts to promote women within that party. The organisations take different roles and types, with some giving women the option of joining and others automatically enrolling all female party members in their women's wings. The intention is to encourage women to join formal party structures, but to allow them to do so in a more comfortable environment, without men.[1]
