This party worked to strengthen and defend women's rights, abortion rights, LGBT rights, asylum rights and refugee rights.

In the 21 October 2007 National Assembly election, the party won 0.28% of the popular vote and no seats in the Sejm or the Senate of Poland. In 2011 general election, the party unsuccessfully stood candidates for election to the Sejm from the Democratic Left Alliance lists. In 2016 "Women's Party" was renamed "Feminist Initiative".[1]

After 13 years of existence, in early 2020 the party was dissolved.
