The mission of the International Center for Research on Women (ICRW) is to "work with partners to conduct empirical research, build capacity and advocate for evidence-based, practical ways to change policies and programs." ICRW was formed in 1976 to address the gender inequality that international development efforts were upholding by not considering the value of women's income in supporting a household. On the website's homepage, visitors can find an excellent study entitled "Gender Equality: Indian Men's Attitudes Complex", that explains ICRW's findings that Indian men are highly conflicted about gender equality. For instance, Indian men feel affording women more rights will take away some of men's rights. The website also offers visitors a "What We Do" section, which explains how the ICRW works to empower women. These efforts include acknowledging the barriers women face, such as HIV, lack of education, violence and child marriage. In the "Where We Work" section, visitors can see a map that shows where their projects and offices are, and can also search for projects by region, status, country, or area of work.
