The Southwest Institute for Research on Women (SIROW) was founded in 1979 as a regional research and resource institute. SIROW’s region includes Arizona, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, Texas, Utah, Wyoming, and northwestern Mexico. SIROW’s mission is to develop, conduct, and disseminate collaborative outreach, education, intervention, and research projects of importance to diverse groups.

SIROW’s projects focus on health and wellness, legal issues, education, employment, women’s history, and the arts.
