Women In Ohio Falling Behind

As we celebrate Women's Equality Day, we need a reminder that women in Ohio are still behind the curve on income, health care, education and a multitude of factors. A study by the Institue On Women, Gender and Public Policy at Ohio State University highlights many of the areas in which Ohio lags behind other states.

The article also mentions that Ohio ranks 44th in breast cancer mortality, meaning only 5 other states have higher rates. It continues to be a striking statistic, given Ohio ranks favorably low on breast cancer incidence, and ranks favorably on mortality rates for other cancers. NOBCCF has been drawing attention to this problem for many years; we're happy to see other organizations finally recognizing the problem.
