CCSWG is pleased to work with the California Budget and Policy Center to highlight the new California Women’s Well-Being Index. The index pulls together an array of measures for women and shares data by race and ethnicity, including health, employment, economic security, and political empowerment. The index is broken down by all 58 California counties with easy-to-download fact sheets by county and each measure. Visit the Index to learn more about how women in your community are faring today and what policymakers can do to make California a better place for women to live and thrive.
