WAC Stats

The Facts About Women

An invaluable handbook of statistics about the realities of women’s lives today

WAC Stats, with its cornucopia of statistics on contemporary women’s conditions, provides the factual firepower women need to challenge our still deeply unequal status.” —Susan Faludi, author of Backlash

WAC was organized in New York City in January 1992 by a group of women determined to fight these and other injustices, which deny women their rights. A democratic alliance of women committed to direct action, WAC now has over two thousand members in New York, more than twenty chapters throughout the United States, and affiliates in Paris, London, Toronto, and Budapest. They have led scores of highly visible demonstrations and media campaigns challenging the economic, cultural, and political circumstances that limit and compromise the lives of women.
