Webinar: The Status of Women and Girls: Women’s Economic Security in the States
Join the Economic Security for Survivors Project and IWPR for an in-depth look at The Status of Women in the States report. Participants will explore data on their state’s economic climate and policies that affect survivors’ opportunity to achieve safety, as well as the economic circumstances facing older women, millennials, women of color, immigrant households, and same-sex households.
A number of factors affect a survivor’s ability to seek safety from an abusive relationship or recover from violence, including their employment status and earnings, level of education, and access to paid sick and safe leave and affordable child care. IWPR’s Status of Women in the States project is a unique source of comprehensive information on women and the economic opportunities and challenges they face. The data this project provides are critical for those seeking to improve the economic security and safety of survivors.
On the webinar, participants will:
- learn how to access data on their state’s economic climate and policies that affect opportunities for survivors to achieve safety;
- learn how to gather information on the unique economic factors facing older women, millennials, women of color, immigrant households, and same-sex households; and,
- hear about how Status of Women data can be used to educate others as part of system advocacy efforts.
