 The Impact of COVID-19 on Women’s Economic Security

A major focus of AAUW is economic security for women.

The 2020 update to AAUW’s report, The Simple Truth about the Gender Pay Gap is now available. It focuses on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on women’s economic security, the projected rate of change for the closing of the gender pay gap based on race, and the work that must be done by policymakers and employers to accelerate that narrowing.

Also, AAUW CEO Kimberly Churches wrote an opinion piece for Newsweek on October 26, 2020, on the topic, “COVID-19 is A Nightmare for Working Moms. Policy Makers Must React.” Read her informative article here.
