The Economic Status of Women in South Carolina: Wide Disparities by Race and Ethnicity
by Erica Williams (December 2007)

This paper examines how women in South Carolina fare on eight indicators of women’s economic status, in comparison with women in other states, including in South Carolina’s region, and with women nationally. It highlights where South Carolina women have seen economic progress and where their conditions have stagnated and examines differences among South Carolina’s women by race and ethnicity. It also details a number of recommendations for policy and practice to improve women’s lives and to promote a more productive state economy.
