Wellesley Centers for Women

Since 1974, the Wellesley Centers for Women has been driving social change through its social science research projects and training programs.

Women’s perspectives and experiences are at the center of all this work, which addresses three major areas: the social and economic status of women and girls and the advancement of their human rights both in the United States and around the globe; the education, care, and development of children and youth; and the emotional well-being of families and individuals. Issues of diversity and equity are central across all the work as are the experiences and perspectives of women from a variety of backgrounds and cultures.
