Your gift the WCW 35th Anniversary Fund provides seed money to fund new, cutting-edge research and programming initiatives in three priority areas of research and action:
ACHIEVING Educational Equity
WCW has pioneered work on deeply rooted gender and racial bias in schools and colleges, studied the impact of sex roles and the media on our children, exposed the educational consequences of sexual harassment in schools, and maintained a steady focus on the under-representation of girls and women in scientific fields. There is still much to do.ADVANCING Women’s Economic Status
The fact that the gender wage gap remains a significant issue in the United States is just one issue women confront on a daily basis. It is essential that we work together to improve public policies and programs that promote women’s education, employment, health, and safety to close this gaps and all other lingering inequalities. WCWs decades of research on quality child care, the status of traditional “women’s work,” and on the critical difference made by women’s leadership, provides on the basis for progress in achieving economic justice for all.PROMOTING Human Rights & Women's Leadership Around the World
As an NGO (non-governmental organization) WCW has developed strong ties with U.N. agencies, the U.S. Department of State, legal advocates, and NGOs around the world. We have built networks across Asia and the Middle East that are grounded in the fundamental principles of human rights. Our work helps empower women to use laws, policymaking, research, and advocacy to advance the rights and welfare of women, children, and persons with disabilities.
Thank you for making a difference!
