Status of Women in the States

Want to know where women stand in your state or community? Look no further.

IWPR’s Status of Women in the States project provides data and analysis on the health, economic, social, political well-being of women. The project provides state-by-state rankings on issues such as pay equity and earnings; poverty and economic security; reproductive rights and access to health care and political participation and civic engagement.

State and federal policymakers, journalists, advocates, and community leaders rely on our reports and rankings to craft sound public policies, identify gaps, allocate funding and create targeted programs.
Over the years, we have partnered with cities, states, policy makers, Foundations, and media partners such as Conde Nast to drive resources to communities and conversations for change.

The Well-Being of Women in Utah in 2019

The percentage of women working part-time in Utah is still the highest in the nation. Business ownership and representation in professional and managerial positions among Utah women are also increasing, more Utah women now live above the poverty line, and women in Utah have made great strides in education attainment; however, the progress in these areas is markedly different when race and ethnicity are taken into account.
