Anthro Insights under its Fempower project aims to strengthen the ability of Women Legislators of National and Provincial Assemblies to undertake Post Legislative Scrutiny (PLS). The one year long Legislative Effectiveness Program will support women legislators in increasing government follow up on laws and accountability; provides avenues for inclusion and enhances the role and standing of women at parliament. Strengthening PLS can help women legislators establish their presence, articulate their viewpoints, gain, and exercise authority as a legislator and ensure implementation of women related laws
