Status of Women in NC Report and Regional Briefing Papers

Since 1996, the Institute for Women’s Policy Research has produced reports on the status of women and girls in states and localities throughout the United States. Status of Women reports have been written for all 50 states and the District of Columbia and have been used throughout the country to highlight women’s progress and the obstacles they continue to face, and to encourage policy and programmatic changes that can improve women’s opportunities. Created in partnership with local advisory committees, the reports have helped state and local partners achieve multiple goals, including educating the public on issues related to women’s and girls’ well-being, informing policies and programs, making the case for establishing commissions for women, helping donors and foundations establish investment priorities, and inspiring community efforts to strengthen economic growth by improving women’s status
