PROBLEM

Socioeconomic factors in the United States prevent women who lack resources from participating and progressing in the workforce. Funding dedicated to addressing this problem does not match the need. Currently, only 1.2 percent of philanthropic giving goes to women’s issues. On top of that, government funding for women is variable and fails to address their most basic needs.
