How are we doing, ladies?

We’ll find out tomorrow with the release of regional data for the “Status of Women in N.C.” report tomorrow at a Greenville event hosted by the N.C. Council for Women.

Cynthia Hess, of the Institute for Women’s Policy Research, will be presenting her research on how women are faring in the state in the eastern part of the state in terms of health, education and family issues. You can read her research here [1].

Here are some of the findings:

A discussion about how women are doing will be held  at a public event at 2 p.m. tomorrow at the Sheppard Memorial Library, 530 Evans St. in Greenville. Hess’ presentation will also be streamed over the web at the Council for Women website here [2].

We’ll  have an update here at N.C. Policy Watch.

In the meantime, how do you think women are doing?

What types of policies should we have, and what advances do you think women in the state need?
