Parliament hosted the first provincial session aimed at reviewing the 1994 Women’s Charter for Effective Equality, on Tuesday - 19 November 2019 in Gugulethu, Western Cape.

The decision to undertake a nationwide Women’s Charter review process was taken during the Women’s Parliament held in August 2019, to cover all nine provinces over the next 12 month.
The women’s charter was adopted in 1954 and it played significant role in setting the tone for today's democratic order. The charter was reviewed in 1994 under the Women's National Coalition, which adopted the Women's Charter for Effective Equality.

Both the 1954 and 1994 Women's Charters called for a society where women are free from discrimination and prejudice. They called for a society which respects women and enforces their rights and inherent human dignity.
