The Economic Status of Women in Pennsylvania

Women in Pennsylvania have made considerable advances in recent years but still face inequities that often prevent them from reaching their full potential. Since the 2004 Status of Women in the States report was published, the gender wage gap in Pennsylvania has narrowed, a higher percentage of women have bachelor’s degrees, and a larger share of women live in poverty. Pennsylvania still ranks in the middle third in the nation for both women’s Employment & Earnings and Poverty & Opportunity.
