Institute for Women’s Policy Research asks women about their concerns and priorities

A February 2021 survey conducted by the Institute for Women’s Policy Research asked women to identify their top policy priorities on which Congress and the Biden Administration should focus. Across the 1,452 survey respondents, healthcare was the top policy priority. Rounding out the top five priorities are: the economic recession, unemployment, racial justice or inequality, and taxes. Stratifying policy priorities by respondent race and ethnicity showed that raising the minimum wage was also a significant concern among Black and Latina women. Making ends meet is a shared concern, as nearly half of all respondents—and two thirds of Latinas—were worried about their income being enough to pay for all family expenses. #covid-19 #workforce #economy #racialequity
