In Missouri, there is still a gender equity gap.

The Women’s Policy Alliance has documented this gap, in black and white, in the Missouri Women’s Report.

Key findings of the Missouri Women’s Report:

  • women earn less and are more likely to live in poverty than men;
  • women face more obstacles than men when trying to get the health care we need;
  • almost as many women earn higher education degrees as men, however women earn 90% of what men with degrees earn;
  • women run into more roadblocks than men when seeking public office.

You can help Missouri become a state where women have equity with men. 

How?

  • Urge your public servants to support the public policy recommendations in the Missouri Women’s Report.  If enacted these reforms would create greater equity for women in Missouri.
  • Use the data to make your case for change: women’s health care advocates across the state are using data from the report to strengthen their case to get more women covered by health insurance.
