Our Impact

The Fuller Project’s journalism changes lives. By telling stories about women and the barriers they face every day, we raise awareness about systems and structural inequality that disproportionately impact women — and inspire action. Since 2015, our investigations have spurred policy change to address child trafficking, been leveraged successfully by legislators to push for historic new levels of funding for maternal care, led to abusive practices being banned, driven news cycles and front pages, and led to large scale releases of data. In the case studies that follow, you’ll see the impact our work is having on communities, civil society, and individual women. These are the stories of The Fuller Project’s journalism.
