Economic Advancement of Women

The YWCA Lower Cape Fear works to empower young women, eliminate barriers, and provide resources that allow women to become full participants in the economic mainstream of our community. We believe when women are empowered to achieve economic self-sufficiency, communities thrive.

NC Women’s Employment & Earnings

The Status of Women in North Carolina: Employment & Earnings is the first in a series of four publications on women’s status in North Carolina commissioned by the North Carolina Council for Women and Youth Involvement. The other publications will cover Health & Reproductive Rights, Poverty & Opportunity, and Political Participation.


The report builds on the Institute for Women’s Policy Research’s long-standing report series, The Status of Women in the States, which has provided data on the status of women nationally and for all 50 states plus the District of Columbia since 1996, including a Status of Women North Carolina report in 2013, as well as a series of briefing papers for specific geographic areas within the state.
The Status of Women in the States publications use data from U.S. government and other sources to analyze women’s status across multiple issue areas. These reports have been used to highlight women’s progress and the obstacles they continue to face and to encourage policy and programmatic changes that can improve women’s opportunities.
