State of the Dream 2020: Building a Fair Economy at the Intersections

All people deserve the kind of economic security wealth provides, but numerous practices and policies have worked to limit the accumulation of wealth for women, and particularly women of color. Considering the historical barriers that block building wealth, individual actions and the "free market" will never be able to sufficiently address gender and racial wealth inequality. The only way to end this outrageous inequality is to attack the gendered and racialized rules that drive it.
