The Status of Women in North Carolina, 2004: Highlights
by Amy Caiazza, April Shaw (November 2004)

North Carolina reflects both the advances and limited progress achieved by women in the United States. Women in North Carolina and the United States as a whole are seeing important changes in their lives and in their access to political, economic, and social rights. However, they by no means enjoy equality with men, and they still lack many of the legal guarantees that would allow them to achieve that equality. Women in North Carolina and the nation would benefit from stronger enforcement of equal opportunity laws, better political representation, adequate and affordable child care, and other policies that would help improve their status.
