The Southwest Institute for Research on Women (SIROW) was founded in 1979 as a regional research and resource institute in the University of Arizona’s College of Social and Behavioral Sciences. SIROW is dedicated to improving the well-being of women and girls, their families, and the communities in which they live. Taking a holistic approach to well-being, SIROW’s interdisciplinary and intersectional community-based research and action projects focus on addressing correlated and co-occurring social and public health issues in the areas of health and wellness, legal issues, education and employment and women’s history and the arts.
