Tallahassee, FL (August 13, 2019) — Wanting to be responsive to the specific concerns and needs of women in Florida, the Florida Commission on the Status of Women will ask women directly about the challenges they encounter in their everyday lives. The (FCSW) will launch the 2019 Voices of Florida Women Online Survey August 19 – September 30, 2019, to coincide with our statewide listening tour. The survey will ask Florida women to select from a list of pre-defined issues that they believe affect women in their community as well as issues that affect them personally. In addition, the survey includes a number of background questions such as education and income levels, age, race, marital status, and county of residence, among others.
The data collected in both the forums and the survey, will be compiled into a report that will describe what is learned about the needs of women and girls – from the Western Panhandle to the Key West, and right here in Southwest Florida. Your contribution will help us speak on your behalf. We will share your feedback with local, state, and national leaders, and focus our future educational and collaborative efforts on the issues that matter most to women in Florida.
Other Women’s Commissions from across the country are hosting similar initiatives this year and will share the results with the National Association of Women’s Commissions to create a broader report – Voices of American Women, to be published in 2020.
Look for the survey link here live on August 19!
