2019 Report on the Status of Chicago's Women and Girls: Full Report
2019 Report on the Status of Chicago's Women and Girls: At a Glance
Four years ago, Chicago Foundation for Women (CFW) launched the 100% Project, an all-in, all-out effort to achieve gender parity in the Chicago region within a generation. The 100% Project is rooted in conversations with Chicagoans from every walk of life about what the biggest issues are for women and girls today, and what we should be doing about those issues, right now.
To keep the conversation going each year, CFW issues an annual Report on the Status of Chicago’s Women and Girls to provide an update on the state of gender equity in our region. This year’s report uses the latest available data from 2017 to provide an update on nine key indicators. It offers a comprehensive look at our progress as a region, and it allows us to assess which women and industries need additional support.
