The Global Women’s Institute (GWI) at the George Washington University launched in the Fall of 2012 as a university-wide initiative to advance gender equality through interdisciplinary research, education, and civic engagement. GWI serves as a catalyst for action, linking faculty and students with international researchers, practitioners, activists, and policymakers to end violence against women and girls, empower women economically, and increase women’s participation and leadership in society.
