Women and Children First display

Women and Children First in Chicago, Illinois, posted to Instagram: “This International Women’s Day we are, of course, thinking a lot about labor — who benefits and who gets left behind. Women have always worked, even if that work is often trivialized and underpaid. Our front window was inspired by a graph from the Center for American Progress regarding the disproportionate rates of unemployment among women or color during the pandemic, erasing years of progress. We will share that graph in our stories!”
