The Women's Fund for the Fox Valley Region is proud to have collaborated with the Fond du Lac Area Women's Fund, the Women's Fund of Greater Green Bay and the Women's Fund of the Oshkosh Area Community Foundation to release an updated Status of Women in Northeast Wisconsin Report this week.

The Women's Funds first released the Status of Women in Northeast Wisconsin Report in 2011. Using data compiled in partnership with the Wisconsin Women's Council for Brown, Fond du Lac, Outagamie and Winnebago counties, as well as the state of Wisconsin, the report is intended to help inform local communities about the realities experienced by women and girls. The 2017 report gives a current and comprehensive picture of the most pressing issues for women and girls in Northeast Wisconsin.
