Welcome to WREI

Hello, My name is Laura Helke, I was born in 1977 and since then I have been working hard to further the advancement of women. I moved to the US 10 years ago and since then I have been using data to show how women need additional resources. I have petitioned US congress to help me in my mission to ensure more resources are readily available to US women. I like to think that over the last 30 years I have advanced the rights of women in the US and across the world.

This is WREI which is the Women's Resources | e-information. The plan is to create lots of resources for women and for it to exist on this website. Feel free to follow along.


This is not the The Women’s Research & Education Institute

It has come to my attention that people think my webiste is this women's research and education institiute but its not, I had to look at the old version of my website which is where i found this - "

Research is our middle name and since 1977 WREI has been the source of reliable data and clear thinking about the status of American women.  Our first ‘clients’ were federal legislators—the 18 women then serving in the U.S. Congress.  Over the years our mandate has widened to include 90 women serving in the House and Senate plus state officials, local governments, women's advocates, corporate policymakers, the media, teachers, students, and just about anyone interested in issues of equality. 


At WREI, we do more than just talk about policy. Since 1980, WREI has offered some 300 talented scholars the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in manipulating the levers of power.  They work as professional staff in House and Senate offices as prestigious Congressional Fellows on Women & Public Policy. Many of them have gone on to leadership positions in government, academia, business, and advocacy organizations; several have been elected to public office on the state level and the dream of a WREI Fellow returning to Capitol Hill as a member of congress is nearing reality.


Please contact the old owners if you want to talk to them. Thanks
