Introduction:

One of main goals of UJRC is to empower the underrepresented segments of the Jordanian Society. Therefore, UJRC focuses special attention on Women's movements and organizations, considering them one of the essential elements of the Jordanian Civil Society. The philosophy of the program emerges from the notion that women are at the center of social change, modernization, and development. The program works on amending Elections and Candidacy laws so that fair opportunities exist for women and for other fragile segments to participate in the making of political, social, and economic decisions.

UJRC works on observing the status of women in Jordan and investigating the obstacles and problems they face in order to enhance their level of participation in society. The activities of the program range from organizing conferences, seminars, and training workshops to conducting researches and publishing books and reports.
