From the press release:
Women in New York State fare worse economically than they did in 1989, according to The New York Women’s Foundation’s new report, The Economic Status of Women in New York State.

The report, researched and authored by the Institute for Women’s Policy Research (IWPR), examines how women in New York State fare in two areas: employment and earnings and social and economic autonomy. While the report finds substantial potential for women’s economic progress, it also depicts a stark and alarming portrait of poverty in a wealthy society, particularly for women of color.
