New Report Gives Connecticut a B Grade for Women’s Employment & Earnings
The Institute for Women's Policy Research (IWPR) recently released new state-by-state rankings relating to women's employment and earnings. While Connecticut ranks near the top of the list PCSW's Executive Director Carolyn Treiss says, "“IWPR has done a thorough job of looking at women’s employment and earnings in all 50 states. And while only three states (Maryland, Massachusetts and New Jersey, along with the District of Columbia) outrank us, we are not resting on our laurels; clearly, there is room for improvement."
