The Fuller Project is the global nonprofit newsroom dedicated to groundbreaking journalism about women to raise awareness, expose injustice, and spur accountability. Our vision is journalism that fully represents all women, giving readers The Full Story, and spurring gender equality.
Our reporters in the US and around the globe rigorously report on untold stories and the interconnected issues affecting women and their communities everywhere. Our reporting often leads the news cycle and is published in prominent outlets, bringing the full story to a large and diverse audience.
Since 2015, our team has published hundreds of articles and reached millions of readers. In 2020 alone, we reported on stories such as: a series on childcare issues affecting working mothers during Covid-19, the pandemic exacerbating the crisis in Black maternal mortality in Wisconsin, intimate partner violence faced by Indigenous communities and compounding systemic barriers to voting, and Black women mobilizing to vote in the recent elections.
