New Report Sheds Light On Missouri Women's Health

Back in 2004, the health and economic status of Missouri women was rated a C- by Women's Policy Research. Have we made progress since then?

A recently released Missouri Women’s report says there is good news and bad news for Missouri’s women.

Women have made gains in the workforce and in higher education, but Missouri women are more likely to live in poverty and still face barriers in employment, education and health care access.

The 74-page Missouri women’s report was a joint project by the Women's Policy Alliance and MU’s Office of Social and Economic Data Analysis.
