For too many women, violence, economic insecurity and lack of access to health care are defining parts of their story.
To flip the script and change the narrative for women and girls, first you have to know the whole story.
Join Chicago Foundation for Women, Chicago Public Library, Heartland Alliance and the Office of the City Clerk of Chicago on Wednesday, August 14 to get the latest data, policy recommendations and opportunities to take action for women and girls. Get the full story of what life looks like for women and girls in our region, and how we can work together to change the narrative for women and girls.
