Miami-Dade County Gender Equity Report
The first annual report on the status of women and girls in Miami-Dade County was presented to the Board of County Commissioners Tuesday, December 6, 2016. The findings shed a light on areas where women and girls are succeeding or struggling, including in education, health and safety and economic development.
The report, authored by the FIU Metropolitan Center, comes as a result of legislation sponsored by Commissioner Daniella Levine Cava. In 2015, the Board of County Commissioners adopted the UN Convention on the Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW). The ordinance requires a report to be produced each year providing a benchmark for measuring gender equity in the county.
