Networking Women: The Australasian Council of Women and Policing

Helen McDermott

Abstract
The challenges presently being faced by women police officers in Pakistan are not
unique to that country. Nations in Asia and the Pacific have formed the Australasian
Council of Women and Policing to address the needs and concerns of female law
enforcement personnel. Lessons learned from this successful endeavor can be applied
to Pakistan and other developing regions to ensure that females are properly represented
in all ranks and policy making positions and that police organizations are representative
of the community being served.
