NC gets D+ for working women

NotEnoughHands.jpgA new report out from the Institute for Women’s Policy Research ranks North Carolina “D+” in policies and practices important to work and family. That places North Carolina 35th overall in the rankings. Nearly 30 percent of North Carolina women work at low-wage jobs, and at the current rate of pay, IWPR predicts women will not reach equal pay with men until 2064. 


The Institute for Women’s Policy Research (IWPR) conducts rigorous research and disseminates its findings to address the needs of women, promote public dialog, and strengthen families, communities, and societies. IWPR works with policymakers, scholars, and public interest groups to design, execute, and disseminate research that illuminates economic and social policy issues affecting women and families and to build a network of individuals and organizations that conduct and use women-oriented policy research.
