YWomen Vote 2020
YWomenVote 2020 Report
Women are motivated to raise their voices to advance shared personal and economic security interests in 2020.
Ensuring women’s voices are at the forefront of policy decisions is a priority as our nation heads into the 2020 elections. YWCA’s national survey of women in the United States, YWomenVote, explores women’s economic, health, gender-based violence, workplace equity, and racial justice concerns and priorities.
The nation will commemorate the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, which gave some women the right to vote, and the 55th anniversary of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, which later expanded critical voting rights and protections for people of color.
Women have responded with consistently high levels of voting participation. As we head into 2020, women — particularly women of color — are primed to continue their unprecedented roles as candidates and decisive voting constituencies in city, county, state, and national elections all over America.
Against this backdrop, new data from YWomenVote2O2O — YWCA’s 3rd national survey of women in the United States — explores their economic, health, gender-based violence, workplace equity, and racial justice concerns and priorities.
