Tadwein Center for Gender Studies was established in 2014, with the aim of spreading evidence-based awareness on gender issues, carrying out projects, drafting policies, and taking the needed procedures to enhance women’s position in the Egyptian society and reduce the violence against women and girls in general. Tadwein is also working on narrowing the gap between the research and the work on the ground through collaborating with many other actors to ensure that most effective approaches are taken to eliminate violence against women and gender discrimination.
Tadwein Center for Gender Studies seeks to bring about change that promotes gender equality in Egypt since improving the status of women and girls is at the core of effective development. Women and girls often face gender-based discrimination, which places them at increased risk of poverty, poor education, disease, and violence. Thus, investing in their health, education, and strengthening their economic roles and political participation will improve women’s lives and benefit them and the society as a whole.
