2021 Report on the Status of Women and Girls in California™


Women and the Pandemic: Impact, Resilience and Moving Forward

#StatusOfWomen #MSMUWomen #UnstoppableWMN

The COVID-19 pandemic has been with us for a full year. What was once novel – wearing a facemask, socially distancing from others, and working from home – has become all too familiar. A year on, the effects are real: many families have tragically lost loved ones, people have lost jobs and struggle to stay in their homes, our health care system is stressed, families work and learn from their kitchen tables, and millions struggle with anxiety and burnout. 

We know that the pandemic has uniquely affected California’s women and girls. Record numbers of women have left the workforce. For an entire year, women have delayed medical care and experienced increased anxiety all while holding their families and communities together. What have we learned in a year? Our event brings together thought leaders to discuss the systemic vulnerabilities that the pandemic has revealed and consider how we create a stronger California for women and girls now and post-pandemic.

 
 

Celebrating 10 years of the most comprehensive report about how women and girls are fairing in California.
