Girls getting good and equal education


In support of the Council on Women and Girls, the Office of Management and Budget and the Economics and Statistics Administration within the Department of Commerce worked together to create the WOMEN OF AMERICA report which, for the first time in recent history, pulls together information from across the Federal statistical agencies to compile baseline information on how women are faring in the United States today and how these trends have changed over time. The report provides a statistical portrait showing how women’s lives are changing in five critical areas:

By bringing together data from across the Federal government, the report is one of most comprehensive sources for information on women’s lives today. This is the first such federal initiative since 1963, when the Commission on Status of Women, established by President Kennedy and chaired by Eleanor Roosevelt, produced a report on the conditions of women. This data initiative will allow government, non-government, and individual actors to craft appropriate responses to changing circumstances. The initiative furthers three governance themes of the Obama Administration: (1) pursuing evidence-based policymaking; (2) catalyzing the private sector, including private researchers, to partner with the government in analyzing data and formulating appropriate policies; and (3) pursuing an all-government and all-agency approach to addressing special issues affecting Americans.

Facts alone can never substitute for actions that directly address the challenges faced by women of all ages and backgrounds. But facts are deeply important in helping to paint a picture of how the lives of American women are changing over time and in pointing toward the actions and policies that might be most needed. Better understanding women’s social and economic well-being now and in the past will help generate ideas to help us all win the future.
