Women and girls in the St. Louis Region face complex and interrelated barriers on their path to achieving economic independence.

Based on themes that emerged from a series of listening sessions the Women’s Foundation of Greater Saint Louis (WFSTL) conducted in Spring of 2017, our Women in the Workplace: Employment Scorecard initiative and a report completed by graduate students at the George Warren Brown School of Social Work at Washington University in St. Louis in Spring 2018, WFSTL adopted a policy agenda for 2018-19 that has three areas of focus:

  • Address economic exploitation of families in poverty

  • Expand access to jobs and fair wages

  • Extends support for working families
