Grades are in for status of women
By: Eric Galatas
Colorado got its report card on the status of women in key areas, and compared with men, the grades aren’t good.
Two new reports, the last of a seven-part series published by the Institute for Women’s Policy Research (IWPR), show Colorado and the nation fall short on work and family policies for women.
In particular, Colorado received a C minus on voter registration, turnout and representation of women in elected office. Lauren Casteel with the Women’s Foundation of Colorado says, as a black woman, she’s seen very few black women at the highest level of the political process.
