The thread of a woman’s economic life:

A third of Baby Boomers in or approaching retirement have between $0 and $25,000 set aside.
Most adults in poverty are women. The median annual income of women age 65 and older is 42 percent lower than men.
In 2016, one-third of the US labor force completed no more than high school.
The median age of women getting married is 28, and the average marriage length that ends in divorce is 7 years. Women’s household income falls by 41% with divorce, almost 2x the decline that men experience.
The average age of female entrepreneurs today is 42.

What makes
Engage different?

We are singularly focused on improving women’s economic security. We will not be divided in our mission. Discussions around divisive social issues are not a focus of Engage’s bipartisan mission. 

Engage does not endorse candidates running for elected office.

Engage does not raise money for or contribute to candidates running for elected office.

from our founder, RACHEL PEARSON

“The political conversation has not adapted to women’s current economic realities. Engage is emerging in a period of profound transformation in every part of our lives, societally and economically. We are a powerful convening of ideas and people taking real action to promote women’s economic security in the United States.”
