The league publicizes information about women's issues and rights in the local press and on thirty local radio programs. It works to find employment and training opportunities for poor and disabled women and teenage girls, and helps women to develop professional skills.

With support from Counterpart and in conjunction with Uzbek Film, the league developed and produced a documentary film to publicize the third sector and activities of local NGOs that address women's issues. It also produced ten television talk shows on which women from various and occupations discussed women's problems and issues.

In March 1998, with support from the German charitable group Konrad Adenour-Stiftung and other organizations, the league held a roundtable, "Traditions and Modern Life," on the leading role of modern women in society.
