Progress in Numbers
How far we have come and how far we have to go
Women in workplace
In 1966 the number was 31.5%, today women make up almost half the workforce.
Black Americans in workplace
Number projected to grow to 36M by 2026.
Black Americans receive college degree
This number is up from 4% in 1964.
Black Americans with high school diploma
This number is up from 27% in 1964
Despite overall increases in participation rates for women in the workplace, a glass ceiling still exists. Data suggests that women continue to experience occupational segregation in nontraditional jobs and men make approximately 20k more per year.
Women still file 74.4% of sexual harassment claims.
While Black Americans now make up a larger majority of the workforce, and a larger portion of the population recieves college degrees and high school diplomas, the numbers are still not equal to their white counterparts
Addressing Gender and Racial Discrimination
After the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960's, Morris Dees noted Black Americans were still excluded from good jobs, quality education and a range of other opportunities.
Dees sold his book publishing business to practice Civil Rights Law and did so successfully with far-reaching effects.
These Morris Dees cases have helped women and Black Americans march out of poverty and into the workplace over the past 50 years.
Dothard v. Rawlinson
The U.S. Supreme Court opened the door for women to be hired for law enforcement jobs, traditionally held by men.
