Helping girls, women and our community

No tool for development is more effective than empowering women. Although Iowa’s women and girls comprise the majority of the state’s population, they still experience a greater percentage of economic disparities, diseases and disabilities, and barriers to corporate and civic leadership than men and boys do. We realize that women have not truly progressed – and in many cases, lost ground.

The value of Iowa’s women and girls must be demonstrated by adequate earnings, career and promotion opportunities, assuring safety, and by having an equal voice for all decisions affecting Iowans. When these are realities, women and girls can participate fully in the life of Iowa communities. This is what we strive for — this is the work of Chrysalis.
