Women's Organizations & Contacts

As the state office and commission representing women in Iowa, our goal is to serve as the state clearinghouse for women's organizations and resources for women. See below for a running list of organizations dedicated to women's issues in Iowa and around the U.S.

This list is always changing, so if you do not see an organization for women you believe should be listed or if the information you see needs to be updated, please e-mail us with the organization's information and we will add the information to this list.
