Past Event


The Costs of Being a Woman

Join the Center for American Progress to discuss the complex and multifaceted costs women of all identities and experiences face in managing their households and to lift up the interventions from a variety of policy areas needed to improve women’s economic security in the long run.

Join the conversation on Twitter using #CAPEvents.

The serious economic harms the wage gap places on women and their families do not exist in a silo. From caregiving and health care costs and much more, the United States’ most pressing economic crises often fall most heavily on women, with those from marginalized communities struggling the most—especially low-income individuals and people of color.

To close out Women’s History Month, the Center for American Progress will be hosting an event on March 29 to discuss the complex and multifaceted costs women of all identities and experiences face in managing their households and to lift up the interventions from a variety of policy areas needed to improve women’s economic security in the long run.

We would love to hear your questions. Please submit any questions for the event’s distinguished panel via email at CAPeventquestions@americanprogress.org or on Twitter using #CAPEvents. Live captioning will be available on Zoom and on the YouTube livestream.
