INTERNATIONAL CENTER FOR RESEARCH ON WOMEN

Rating: 5 stars   5 reviews

Issues: International

Location: 1120 20TH St Nw Ste 500 Washington DC 20036 USA

Mission: ICRW's mission is to empower women, advance gender equality and fight poverty in the developing world. To accomplish this, ICRW works with partners to conduct empirical research, build capacity and advocate for evidence-based, practical ways to change policies and programs.
Results: Expanded key research and analysis on issues that affect women’s health, economic security, and their overall well-being. Grew ICRW programs around the world and develop integrated solutions to complex social problems such as HIV and violence against women and girls. Informed policy makers and decision makers about the critical issues facing women and girls, and create a community of public supporters advocating for women’s human rights.
Programs: ICRW research identifies women's contributions to their communities and the barriers – like HIV, violence, lack of education – that prevent them from being economically stable and able to fully participate in society. We provide a path that creates the conditions under which not just one woman, but millions of women can benefit. We do this by: Designing concrete, evidence-based plans for program designers, donors and policymakers that empower women to control their lives and help shape the future of their communities Measuring changes in the lives of women and girls – as well as men and boys – to know how best to achieve gender equality Recommending policy priorities that give women opportunities to transform their lives ICRW talks to women. We help their voices be heard. And we make sure that the unique vulnerabilities they face as well as the unrecognized contributions they make are integrated into efforts to reduce poverty, improve health and create a more equitable world.

After years of work on foreign assistance, I was drawn to ICRW's impact In designing and strengthening programs with its partners to benefit the livelihoods of women and girls throughout the world. They also opened my eyes to the understanding of needing to program in men and boys to achieve long-term sustainable change in societies. Thank you ICRW for the amazing work that you do, and in continuing to challenge us all to think of better and smarter ways to make life better for Half the Sky!

Both state and civil society in Asia (and India in particular) have benefited enormously from ICRW’s high quality evaluations, policy briefs and sharing of global experiences. ICRW’s work is contributing significantly to public action that seeks to eliminate discrimination against girls and women, end child marriages, empower women and promote greater freedoms for young girls and adolescents. As a Board member closely associated with ICRW’s Asia Regional Office in New Delhi, I am proud to support such an exceptional organization.

ICRW has a low public profile, but it does fabulous work on women's issues. It is research and fact based and collaborates with many other groups, public and private, domestic and international to address the issues of our day, such as child marriage, women's economic well being, health, and violence. I couldn't be more pleased to be supporting such a fine organization.
