New IWPR Report Shows Economic Recovery Hinges on School Reopenings, Strong Care Infrastructure, and Putting Women Back to Work

Despite modest employment gains, women still 5.5 million jobs below pre-pandemic level. Unemployment for Black and Hispanic women remains high.
New October jobs data show women remain 5.5 million jobs below February's levels. Despite women gaining 280,000 (43.9 percent) of 638,000 new non-farm payroll jobs since October and adult women having lower unemployment rates (6.5 percent) than men (6.7 percent) for the first time since April, stubborn trends continue.
New research released by the Institute for Women's Policy Research (IWPR) for Latina Equal Pay Day shows a continued large wage gap for Latina workers.
Jobs data show substantially slowed growth since September. For the first time in the COVID-19 recession, women have gained fewer jobs than men.
An analysis released today by the Institute for Women's Policy Research (IWPR) shows that women are still almost 40 years from reaching pay equity with men if trends continue at the current pace. Each year the wage gap persists, women fall further behind men in overall earnings and ability to build assets and wealth with a cumulative effect each year in which earnings differences continue.
