Women Digital Empowerment is a digital platform introduced as a dialogue and feedback mechanism whose aim is to engage women to discuss issues and government policies, plans, and initiatives addressing those issues. The platform is not only dynamic and interactive but also result oriented. Feedback on the platform may lead to formulation of informed policy recommendations to attract legislators’ attention towards women’s voices.
