WDF aims to unite women against capitalism, patriarchy, religious fascism, national oppression and Pakistan's authoritarian political system.

The Women Democratic Front views patriarchal oppression and the violence and discrimination it produces as part of the overall oppression and exploitation experienced by working people. To bring an end to this oppression and exploitation, the WDF struggles against the feudal, capitalist, religious extremist, and imperialist structures that sustain them. The Front is committed to continue its struggle until women’s right to life, their emancipation from all forms of oppression, and people’s democracy have been realized in Pakistan.
