Women comprise 50.3% of California’s population. We are half the tax-payers, half the voters, and half of what makes this state a leader and the 5th largest economy in the world. Additional and ongoing investments and support are necessary to bolster California women’s recovery and ensure that we are truly on track for recovery from the pandemic, but we are honored to be able to begin by offering support through the Women’s Recovery Response. Please use this digital toolkit to share your work under this grant and show that #WomenAreEssential!
