EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

The report lays out a brief history of affordable housing, and uses a gender lens to look at state and federal housing policy in the public and private sectors. Attention is especially focused on looking across the gender spectrum to show groups that are disproportionately unprotected by current housing policy: women who are poor or near poor, veterans, formerly incarcerated people and gender nonconforming youth. In addition, the report offers basic definitions of housing terminology and classifications and a selection of the different types of housing available in the U.S.

Occupational Segregation Primer

This Google Hangout features five participants from different sectors discussing the impact and limitations of occupational segregation for women, men and the economy over all. Taking advantage of the cross-sectoral dialogue, participants lay out major issues contributing to occupational segregation’s persistent presence in the U.S. labor force – e.g., education, traditional divisions of labor, historical trends, stereotyping and rigid gender norms. At the same time, they assess recent and ongoing developments helping to reshape some pockets of labor and work to be more gender equal.

Discussion is broken into the five segments below.
