ABSTRACT

She-Cession in Colorado: The Impact of COVID-19 on Women in the Workforce in 2020   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Document: "In the early months of the pandemic, the 'She-Cession' was coined as the evidence mounted that women were facing disproportionate, negative impacts through the unfolding economic upheaval. While the economy partially recovered from the worst of the downturn, the devastating impacts to women in the workforce continued. In the U.S., over 2.1 million women left the labor market entirely since the beginning of the pandemic and are not yet looking to return to work. Since July of 2020, Common Sense Institute (CSI) has issued recurring reports detailing the different ways the Colorado economy and labor force were impacted throughout the course of 2020. While both men and women faced historic impacts, a consistent CSI finding is that working women faced greater challenges and larger negative impacts."
