This paper examines how women in Ohio fare on eight indicators of women’s economic status, in comparison with
women in other states, including in Ohio’s region, and with women nationally. It highlights where Ohio women have
seen economic progress and where their conditions have stagnated and examines differences among Ohio’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.
