Watch On-Demand! What is the status of Ohio women in 2023?

January 25 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Women and girls comprise half of Ohio’s population and hold most of the college degrees, yet they are more likely to be in poverty than their male counterparts. Women make up more than half the electorate but are not equally represented in elected office. Women tend to live longer, and in Ohio, remain in their homes and communities at older ages than men. Older women are close to twice as likely to live alone as their male counterparts, and women are much more likely to be caregivers of another adult. Many more female high school students are reporting problems with anxiety, depression, and thoughts of suicide, yet our public mental health service is treating more boys than girls.

What is the Status of Women? Maybe it’s this: We lead in so many areas. Why do we continue to find ourselves behind?

Hear from our research experts, examining the more than 160 data points from 13 official sources packed into 88 fact sheets tell the story (some of it, anyway) of the health, social, and economic lives of women in Ohio.

Watch on demand!
