Centre for Women and Children Studies (CWCS) is a non-profit and non-political organization for encouraging, sponsoring and promoting multi-disciplinary basic and action research aimed at burgeoning socio-economic development of women, men and children. Centre was established in February 1997 to develop pro-women policy planning in Bangladesh and its implementation in a more meaningful way.


The Centre primarily acts as a pressure group to lobby with the policy planners and decision-makers.


The vision of the Centre is the inclusion of women in policy agenda to ensure equality in socio-economic, legal and political spheres leading to distributive justice.
