Economic Justice for Women
The Family Fund's program for women supports projects designed to promote economic justice. In particular, the program seeks to provide women with equitable employment opportunities and to improve their work lives.
Past grants include a national advocacy, research, and public education effort aimed at achieving pay equity; support to state-level "economic agenda" coalitions to train women in leadership and public policy skills; advocacy efforts on behalf of contingent and part-time workers; a public education campaign designed to increase awareness of the need for universal pre-K programs; and advocacy designed to eliminate sex discrimination in the insurance industry.
