The Rural Women’s Parliament is an initiative of the National Council Women Caucus and its formation was largely inspired by the resolution of the 2011 UN Commission on the Status of Women, which called for the involvement of grassroots women in social programmes with the aim of empowering them to become leaders in their communities. The First Lady Madam Monica Geingos delivered the keynote address at the official opening of the session.
