WisBusiness: Report says women making economic gains in state


Wisconsin women have made “significant strides” toward improving their economic status over the past five years, according to a new report from Lt. Gov. Barbara Lawton.

Lawton said progress has been made in four areas key to women’s workforce participation and economic success since 2003, when the Wisconsin Women = Prosperity (WW=P) initiative was launched.

Those four areas are: economic sufficiency; leadership and political participation; health, safety and well being; and educational achievement.
