While women’s rights organizations such as the NWLC celebrate the passing of the Health Care Reform Bill for prohibiting insurance companies from charging women higher premiums than men but they also warn that there is still work to be done to make health care accessible to all women and families. The NWLR urges all advocates of women’s health to tell your senators to vote no to any amendments on the improvement bill and pass the last part of health care reform.

The combined effects of the recession, high unemployment, and the state budget crisis have resulted in our state’s poverty level growing to 12.8 % in recent years. California has a particularly high number of working families living in poverty: 89% of poor families have at least one household member who is employed. Adjusted to include the cost of living, San Francisco has a poverty rate of 19%. Food costs alone have increased 15% in the past five years.
