The job news was better than expected. But for women, not exactly.

Does this issue touch your life?

The U.S. economy added 467,000 jobs in January, but the numbers are lopsided. Women gained 40 percent of these new jobs to men’s 60 percent. Of the women who left their jobs during the pandemic, 1.1 million have yet to return.

As we round the corner on Covid and head into another election year, opportunities are everywhere to do things differently.

We look together for bold actions. Solutions like offering flexible work arrangements, providing paid family leave, and expanding access to more affordable childcare.

What will help your family better balance caregiving and work responsibilities? Who will represent your views and hold sway in shaping the policies you care about?

Here’s what you can do:

  1. Find and urge women who can act on these issues to be your voice at the table in elected office and bring the change you want to see.
  2. Pay attention to candidates who can draw women off the sidelines and back into the game.
  3. Make sure we don’t elect those who will create further obstacles to reaching the goalpost: a workplace that’s better for women, for men, for families, for all of us.
