The Women’s Bureau is committed to reducing barriers that inhibit or prevent women from getting and keeping better jobs, and we recognize that some women may face more barriers than others.
To raise awareness about the uphill battle that many women of color face when trying to support themselves and their families, we recently published fact sheets about the economic status of women of color.
The fact sheets provide a snapshot of the current racial and ethnic disparities occurring in wages, unemployment, and educational attainment, and the interconnected effects of these factors on the larger populations of working women of color.
While you’re on our site, take a look at our updated Data & Statistics page, where you can find interesting facts and figures about women in the workforce, including earnings, education, unemployment rates, and more.
Come take a look today!

Rise Up! Typhoon Haiyan Relief Campaign:
Typhoon Haiyan is being called one of the worst storms in recorded human history, and as relief efforts begin, many of us want to help and some have even collected items, but as this article shows, money is the best way to help.
The Combined Fund Drive has begun a special disaster relief campaign for victims of Typhoon Haiyan that will run from now until December 13 to help by focusing on charities who are on the ground with support. For more information on which charities are in the Philippines, and how to give to them using your credit card, simply visit the Typhoon Haiyan Relief Campaign webpage. To start giving right away, click here, select TYPHOON HAIYAN RELIEF CAMPAIGN, and designate your charities.
Many of us know friends whose families will be affected by this disaster. Your gift will go a long way to helping the recovery effort.
