Kvinderådets arbejde er køns- og ikke partipolitisk.
Via udviklingen af en fælles politik ud fra en kvindesynsvinkel er det målet at fremme kvinders menneskerettigheder herunder forebygge vold mod kvinder, fjerne ulige løn og anden form for diskrimination på arbejdsmarkedet og sikre kvinder indflydelse i samfundets magtcentre.
