We all want women to succeed in living out their dreams – whether those dreams are to become the CEO of a major corporation, the President of the United States, a home-based entrepreneur, or a stay-at-home mother raising strong children and building a healthy community.
We need policies that help women achieve those dreams by creating the conditions for a growing economy that offers a wide variety of jobs with different benefit packages and work arrangements. We need families to be able to get ahead and craft the lives they want with a system that rewards work, allows them to keep more of what they earn, and gives them greater control over resources.
The Independent Women’s Forum proudly offers this Working for Women Agenda with specific policy reforms that advance this cause and will give women greater opportunity to flourish by removing government regulations that hold them back and encouraging the creation of a more dynamic, innovative, and flexible work world.
