IWRA’s work is diverse. In recent years, the organization has focused on increasing women‘s representation in politics and the judicial system, eradicating gender income inequality and online violence, and making gender studies a mandatory subject in secondary schools.
IWRA actively cooperates with partner organizations in the Nordic and Baltic states, and has been a member of the International Alliance of Women (IAW) since 1907 and the European Women’s Lobby (EWL) since 2019.
The Icelandic Women’s Rights Association regularly publishes reports on gender equality in Iceland.
Two recent reports available in English is a shadow report on Iceland’s implementation of CEDAW − the Convention on the Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination Against Women, and a study about online violence against women in Iceland, Denmark and Norway.
