In the midst of the current economic crisis—which is exacerbating previously existing disparities and inequalities in the United States—the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act offers an opportune moment to raise up public investment for all citizens and make inroads in gender equality. Building on NCRW's commitment to initiatives that advance women’s economic well-being, this project aims to gain a better understanding of the impact of the Recovery Act on women and their families. Additionally, the project examines the inequities in the initiative’s allocation of resources and ways to address any resulting disparities. Research has shown that educating and advancing women has an exponential impact on family well-being.
