Status of Women in the States
IWPR’s Status of Women in the States project provides timely 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.
This report builds on IWPR’s long-standing work on The Status of Women in the States, a series of data analyses and reports that for nearly 20 years have provided data on women’s status nationally and for all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
The report aims to amplify the historical and current contributions of Black domestic workers to the broader domestic worker movement. Using available data, the report describes the experiences of millions of Black women across the United States, and offers recommendations where the opportunities for Black women can be realized.
