During August, which is known as Women’s Month in South Africa, the Legislature hosts a sitting for women. The Women’s Parliament offers women of the province a forum to express their views, to debate issues affecting them in general and those affecting them as women of KwaZulu-Natal in particular, and to engage with real politicians and institutions dealing with women’s issues. 

The Women’s Parliament resembles the Youth Parliament in terms of the duration of the programme, the number of participants, the term of office, pre-planning meetings and party representation. Some 80 women, representing the various political parties within the KZN Legislature, participate in this forum.
