The mission of the Department of Women is to accelerate socio-economic transformation and implementation of women's empowerment and participation through oversight, monitoring, evaluation and influencing policy.

The priority of the Ministry and the Department is to ensure that women's socio-economic empowerment and women's rights are mainstreamed across all sectors of society through: monitoring the extent to which the social and economic circumstances of women are significantly improved; promoting, advocating for and monitoring women's empowerment and gender equality; promoting the understanding of differential circumstances of women and men in society, and the impact of seemingly neutral decisions, plans, laws, policies and practices on either gender through capacity building on gender mainstreaming and responsive gender budgeting; and facilitating and monitoring capacity building and skills development for women to participate meaningfully in all areas of the economy and the workplace.
