Regional Partners

Regional Network

The Southwest Institute for Research on Women (SIROW), established in 1979, is a regional research and resource institute within the Gender and Women’s Studies Department at the University of Arizona. SIROW’s mission is to develop, conduct, and disseminate collaborative outreach, education, advocacy, and research projects of importance to diverse women and children in southwest United States and northwest Mexico.

The SIROW region includes Arizona, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, Texas, Utah, Wyoming, and the US-Mexico border region. Included in SIROW’s broader mission is the important role of serving as a regional network resource. In this capacity, SIROW has three complimentary goals: (1) to serve as a clearing house - disseminating information about its regional partners via SIROW’s website, regional newsletters, and annual meetings; (2) to support the advancement of scholarship and research in gender and women’s studies across the region; and (3) to maintain and broaden a network of gender and women’s studies scholars and researchers – solidifying a supportive relationship between students, scholars, researchers and other feminist professionals.
