CFW releases report on local women, girls
2018-10-10

facebook twitter google +1 reddit email


The Chicago Foundation for Women ( CFW ) has released the second edition of its annual Report on the Status of Chicago's Women and Girls.

The report uses 2016 data from the U.S. Census and Illinois Department of Public Health to track the Chicago region's progress towards gender equity.

Compared to 2015 data, women's labor force participation, and corporate and political leadership increased, relative to men. While the teen birth rate decreased, the percentage of families headed by single women increased.

Among other things, the report examines rates of higher education attainment and labor force participation for women by race and ethnicity, finding that while women as a group are at or near parity in these areas, significant disparities remain for Black and Latina women. The data also confirms that women are over-represented in fields such as healthcare and underrepresented in non-traditional fields such as construction, natural-resource extraction and maintenance.

The full report is at https://www.cfw.org/app/uploads/2018/10/GenderEquity2018_Report_Final.pdf.
