Dear Friends, 

The Women’s Bureau is committed to reducing barriers that inhibit or prevent women from getting and keeping better jobs, and we recognize that some women may face more barriers than others.

To raise awareness about the uphill battle that many women of color face when trying to support themselves and their families, we recently published fact sheets about the economic status of women of color.

The fact sheets provide a snapshot of the current racial and ethnic disparities occurring in wages, unemployment, and educational attainment, and the interconnected effects of these factors on the larger populations of working women of color.

While you’re on our site, take a look at our updated Data & Statistics page, where you can find interesting facts and figures about women in the workforce, including earnings, education, unemployment rates, and more. 

For more information about your equal pay rights and what we’re doing to close the wage gap, please visit the Equal Pay sites at the Department of Labor and the White House.

Come take a look today!
