Jewish Women’s Foundation of the Greater Palm Beaches helps to fund policy research on Women in Florida
In Florida and across the country, women are making great strides. More women are earning bachelor’s degrees and women’s entrepreneurship is growing rapidly. Yet, too many women and girls live in poverty with limited access to education, health care, and other important supports that would allow them to achieve economic stability. The Status of Women in Florida by County: Poverty & Opportunity is the first in a series produced by the Institute for Women’s Policy Research and commissioned by Florida Women’s Funding Alliance, an affinity group of Florida Philanthropic Network. This research aims to provide critical data that can help to build economic security and overall well-being among the state’s women and girls.
