Research & Advocacy


About the Research and Advocacy Department

AWARE is dedicated to advocacy through research. Evidence-based advocacy ensures that our policy recommendations and reports are well-received by stakeholders in the quest for gender equality. Our research teams use both quantitative and qualitative methods to produce reports, position papers, and policy submissions on issues related to women. Our advocacy strategies focus on reforming attitudes on gender equality at the state level, as well as in public discourse.

AWARE’s research pertains to all facets of society–government officials, social workers, academics, members of the public and other stakeholders. We want to keep women (and men!) informed so that they may be a force for change within their local and greater communities. We welcome you to explore the work we’ve done and the problems we continue to face so that you, too, can join the conversation.
