Women’s Research and Education Institute (WREI)

Archived web site of www.wrei.org/

 

An independent nonprofit organization, the Women's Research & Education Institute "gathers, synthesizes, and analyzes policy-relevant information on issues that concern or affect women, and serves as a resource for federal and state policymakers, advocates for women, scholars, the media, and the interested public." WREI was founded in May 1977 by the bipartisan Congresswomen's Caucus as its non-partisan data/policy analysis arm. Since then it has followed the Caucus's agenda, organizing Capitol Hill briefings, and researching and reporting on a range of issues including healthcare, Social Security, women in uniform, affirmative action, Title IX, sexual harassment, etc. In the 1980s the Congresswomen's Caucus Corporation changed its name to the WREI and became an independent research center but it continued to provide timely and non-partisan information to Congressional representatives.
