Clearinghouse On Women's Issues

Clearinghouse On Women's Issues CWI is committed to the core values of feminism and social change through disseminating information on public policy matters.

The Clearinghouse on Women’s Issues was established in 1974 by a diverse group of women and organizations. CWI presents expert speakers on current topics which impact the lives of women, particularly public policies that affect women economically, educationally, medically and legally. We also cooperate and exchange information with other organizations that work to improve the status of women, nationally and internationally. We host nine monthly programs per year for our members and guests and speakers have included representatives from the White House, Congress, academe, professional and advocacy organizations. The informal discussion that follows is always a highlight.

Mission: To provide information to members on issues related to women, including discrimination on the basis of gender, age, ethnicity, or marital status, with particular emphasis on public policies that affect the economic, educational, health and legal problems of women. To cooperate and exchange information with other organizations that work to improve the status of women. To take action or positions that are compatible with CWI's purpose and tax-deductible status.
