In response to Florida’s D+ rating on the Institute for Women's Policy Research (IWPR) 2015 report, Florida Philanthropic Network and Florida Women's Funding Alliance (FWFA) commissioned a groundbreaking study of women in Florida by county. The reports will look deeper into key areas to develop actionable policy recommendations to shift that D+ to an A for Florida women:
- The Status of Women in Florida by County: Poverty & Opportunity is the first in the series. Released in December 2016, the report estimates that women’s poverty would be reduced by nearly 60 percent if Florida’s working women received equal pay.
- The Status of Women in Florida by County: Employment & Earnings finds that Florida’s grade for women’s employment and earnings has worsened since 2004 and reveals wide disparities in women’s status by county and by race and ethnicity.
- The Status of Women in Florida by County: Population & Diversity analyzes the demographics of women and men in the state. Released in December 2016, the report examines the characteristics of Florida’s women and girls and provides a foundation to contextualize their status in specific areas and help illuminate specific populations’ challenges that may require support.
