Did you know that Minnesota has an Office on the Economic Status of Women? OESW advises the legislature and provides information and statistics on women in Minnesota. The office gathers information on population characteristics, educational attainment and enrollments, marital and parental status, household characteristics, labor force status and employment characteristics, and basic information on women’s legal and economic rights.
OESW publishes a monthly newsletter, and their May issue is a follow up to February’s, which included research findings about media coverage of women’s sports. Check it out below.
