IWPR Listservs

Welfare Monitoring Listserv

This electronic mail listserv provides a daily forum for researchers, advocates, and service providers to discuss methodological research questions and policy issues and to access and share important news, information, and research tools related to welfare reform. In operation since 1995, the listserv has more than 850 members and is growing daily.

As part of the project to coordinate welfare research, IWPR has set up a listserv (electronic bulletin board) which is devoted to the discussion of welfare reform. This listserv offers the opportunity for scholars, advocates, and other interested individual s to share their research, advocacy strategies, and questions on welfare and welfare reform in individual states and at the national level. Discussion can also be related to other issues, such as domestic violence or health. Information such as calls for papers, conference information, fact sheets, and legislative updates are also welcome.

Policy Listserv and Strategy Exchange (PuLSE)

Despite gains in women's economic, political and reproductive health status, research and everyday experience demonstrate that the work of those committed to improving women's status is far from complete. Building coalitions among researchers, advocates and legislators within and among states is key to strengthening policy strategies and research that seek to improve women's status. That is why the Institute for Women's Policy Research (IWPR) created the Policy Listserv and Strategy Exchange (PuLSE), made possible by a generous grant from the Rockefeller Family Fund.

Developed in response to a demand for a convenient forum for broad-based communication between individuals interested in improving the current social, political and economic status of women, the IWPR PuLSE provides the opportunity to share your work, ideas, and concerns. Suggested topics include employment and earnings, childcare, income support programs, pay equity, affirmative action, pensions and social security, reproductive rights, sexuality and body image, violence against women, women's health, women's political participation and issues affecting low-income income. We welcome participation by all individuals invested in improving women's status and encourage discussion of disparities and diversity among women.
