Legal & Policy Reform


Since its inception, the WMC has been lobbying for policy reform in the areas of women’s health, employment, political representation and labour. The WMC works in collaboration with government institutions in the formulation and drafting of policies and assisting with legal reform. WMC also uses the CEDAW (Convention on the Elimination of all forms of Discrimination Against Women) framework in all its work while increasing awareness on the women's convention and monitoring its implementation.

WMC is a member organization of Action Network for Migrant Workers (ACTFORM)

WMC is a member organization of Sri Lanka Women’s NGO Forum (SLWNGOF)
