SIROW's mission is to improve the lives of women and girls – particularly those living in the Southwest – through inter-disciplinary and inter-institutional research and action projects. Our projects include a broad spectrum of themes and issues from health and wellness to education, employment, women’s history and the arts. It is our belief that by challenging the status quo, facilitating the voices of those who experience disparity, working with diverse groups of women, men and transgender individuals, and seeking innovative methods to improve conditions and contexts, positive changes can be made at an individual, social and structural level.
