MarketWatch: ‘We are drowning in debt’: Black & Brown mothers grapple with more obstacles balancing child care & bills

August 9. 2022

ERA’s Family Voices Amplified report is the subject of a MarketWatch article (also available here), which highlights the experiences of Menyuan Jordan, a participant in our survey and Kitchen Table Conversations, which inform the report.

Executive Director Noreen Farrell is also featured in the article:

“There is nearly a constant state of anxiety for working mothers and family breadwinners in this country,” Noreen Farrell, executive director of Equal Rights Advocates, told MarketWatch…

“Until the work of women is prioritized and child care is seen as an essential component of that, there won’t be policies to really address what are long standing inequities in our economy.”
