NJ Women Count

Project Overview

research_njwcWomen Leaders Count began as an Institute research project in 1993, was reborn in the fall of 2001 as a research partnership between Rutgers’ Institute for Women’s Leadership and the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs, the Division on Women, and became once again a stand-alone research project at the IWL.

By bringing together available data, analyzing demographic trends, and identifying research gaps, the reports in the series focused on the status of New Jersey women in key areas of demographics and activism, work, education, health, poverty, the law, and violence against women.

Since 2007, the Institute has published Women’s Leadership Fact Sheets as part of the project, and will continue to publish occasional reports.
