Background Information:
The Department of State for Women's Affairs is a ministerial portfolio that is held under the Vice-President.

The department is responsible for giving policy guidance and proposals to the Gambia Government on issues affecting women. The National Women's Council acts as a forum for women while the Women's Bureau serves as the Secretariat to the NWC.

In this respect, the bureau currently focuses on information collection, distribution, and research. The Bureau assists the NWC in looking for trends and creating ties with other institutions on the socio-economic and political front, reviewing bills, laws, programmes, new technologies, policies,  and giving out pertinent information for the country's leading decision making.

The office also helps in identifying capacity building and training bodies. It is also required to take on a front role in the coordination of women's issues.
