The Norwegian Labor Party is the country's largest political party, with over 50,000 members. The Labor Party's women's network is an open network for all women members and aims to recruit, educate and motivate women toward political work, especially into leadership positions. The network is also a driving force for placing women’s political issues on the agenda.
The women’s network works internationally through social, democratic umbrella organizations at the Nordic, European and global level.
The Norwegian Labor Party’s Women’s Network also works together with the Norwegian People's Aid on a program “Women Can Do IT” (WCDI). WCDI is a course program that combines organizational and political education for women to strengthen their positions in society. The goal is to increase women's self-esteem, awareness of their strengths and motivation to participate in decision-making to impact social development. Currently there are courses in twenty-five countries in Asia, Africa, Middle East and Europe (including the Balkans and White Russia).
The Norwegian Labor Party's National Congress chose Anniken Huitfeldt as head of the women's network. The central committee appointed a Board of Directors for the network. All counties also have county chairs in the Women's Network.
