DID YOU KNOW?
African-American girls have suspension rates that are almost six times the rate of their counterparts and more than most boys of color as well.
African-American girls are doing worse than the national average for girls on almost every measure of academic achievement.
As A RESULT…
Only 2 percent of African American women are represented in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, or STEM, fields, while women in total make up 24 percent of the STEM workforce.
African American women held 8.58 percent of bachelor’s degrees held by women in 2015 though they constituted 12.7 percent of the female population.
African American women are three times more likely than white women to be incarcerated.
Of the 98 women in Congress, only 14 are African American women.
