Introduction and Summary of Findings
The Status of Women in Montgomery County report describes women’s experiences through quantitative data, both to measure observable progress and trends among women over the past decade and to identify specific obstacles, gaps, and disparities that continue to create challenges for women in the County. This report is compiled every 10 years by the Montgomery County Commission for Women. The intention is to present information that will guide new directions for better policies for women, girls, and families.
