Voices of Florida Women
In 2022, the Commission partnered with the University of North Florida Public Opinion Research Lab to develop a statistically sound survey methodology. The goal of the survey was to identify key issues facing women, understand the critical needs women and their communities perceive as important, build trust with constituents, and highlight the diverse viewpoints of all segments of the population from across the state.
The goal of this study is to identify key issues facing women, understand critical needs women and their communities perceive as important, build trust with constituents, and highlight the diverse viewpoints of all segments of the population from across the state. In particular, the study places a special focus on women between the ages of 18 and 24, a population previously underrepresented in research.
This report serves to inform the FCSW about the top issues, barriers, and challenges affecting Florida women.
