Status of Arkansas women: Better, but ...

Posted By on Mon, Jan 28, 2013 at 12:49 PM

Lynette Watts, CEO of the Women's Foundation of Arkansas, is speaking during the noon hour at the Clinton School on a 2013 update to the 1973 report by the Arkansas Commission on the Status of Women.

On the one hand ... More women graduate from college than men. On the other ... but they are in the minority in political and and other leadership jobs. 35 percent of men make more than $50,000 a year, compared with 20 percent of women. And so on.

I don't have the latest update presented today, but then-state Rep. Kathy Webb presented a comprehensive status report in the fall to the legislature. You can read it all here. It came with many recommendations. That short version was that women lag behind men in most important measures and that Arkansas lags behind the country as a whole.
