2013-14 Annual Report
Women's Foundation of California
It can be seen in this year's annual report how financial support is empowering the use of public policy to create equity, advance human dignity and deliver on promises to create a California where everyone can thrive. 100,000 low-wage workers can now earn overtime pay: through the Women's Policy Institute 10 activists were trained who were instrumental in passing the groundbreaking California Domestic Worker Bill of Rights. As a result, domestic workers, 90 percent of whom are women, now have equal protection under the law and can earn overtime pay.
