This paper examines how women in Michigan fare on eight indicators of women’s economic status, in comparison
with women in other states, including in Michigan’s region, and with women nationally. It highlights where Michigan
women have seen economic progress and where their conditions have stagnated and examines differences among
Michigan’s women by race and ethnicity. It also details a number of recommendations for policy and practice to
improve women’s lives and to promote a more productive state economy.
