State of Our State 2019 Policy Brief: Gender

Developed in partnership with the A Better Balance, this policy brief addresses the state of working women in Tennessee. It finds that half of Tennessee families depend on a female breadwinner. Yet, most women in our state face significant barriers to achieving economic security for themselves and their families.

The brief highlights pro-family policies that would make it easier for women to join and stay in the workforce, boosting economic growth and making our state a better place to live, work and raise a family.
