Program Updates

New Gender Stat Installment

"Gender Stat: Poverty" helps you to put a gender lens on poverty statistics and to consider the impact of race, age, sexuality, family type and geography.

New Primer: Precarious Lives: Gender Lens on Low-Wage Work

A primer that uses the framework of precarity, a concept rarely used in a U.S. context, to investigate the constraints at work—on earnings, flexibility, predictability, benefits, availability—that leave workers' lives, especially women's, perpetually unstable. An element of the organization's new precarity initiative, this primer delves into aspects of economic policy and workplace and labor market conditions as they intersect with gender, race and class.

New Initiative: Gender and Precarity

We are excited to announce our new multipart initiative focused on exploring precarity through the prism of gender. Generously funded by the Ford Foundation and launched during our 2014 conference, this two-year project will address the combined impact of gender discrimination experienced via occupational segregation, workplace practices, sexual violence, immigration and housing.

An annotated collection of recent research on multiple generations sharing the workforce captures debates among scholars including whether comparing and contrasting workplace generations yields meaningful information about people and work.

Report: Money in Politics with a Gender Lens

A project by Re:Gender, in collaboration with the Center for American Women and Politics at Rutgers University’s Eagleton Institute of Politics, and the Center for Responsive Politics, the report explores the effects of the Citizens United decision by looking specifically at how women fared as candidates and acted as donors in elections held after the U.S. Supreme Court decision in 2010. This report was supported by the Piper Fund, a Proteus Initiative.

New Gender Stat Series

Re:Gender is proud to announce the launch of Gender Stat, a tool that collects statistics on gender equity, annually and by topic. This first installment, Politics 2013, highlights data on women's political leadership in 2013, along with a few recent papers that explore barriers to women's greater political participation. It includes several comparisons of regional and global metrics.
