This project tracked data and policies affecting women's economic status in Massachusetts.

Although women in Massachusetts rank highly on economic indicators when compared to the rest of the country, some groups of women experience growing and persistent poverty. This project tracks policies and data affecting women’s economic wellbeing, compared the data with a report she wrote in 2005, and produced a policy brief, Overcoming Persistent Economic Inequities, in May 2009.
