Fair access to safe, accessible, and affordable housing in integrated neighborhoods is vital to the wellbeing of women and girls. Where we live is at the very core of our daily lives. And yet, women—and in particular women facing intersecting forms of discrimination—are significantly more likely than men to face housing instability due to both lower incomes and more challenges in securing an affordable place to live in a high-opportunity neighborhood. The COVID-19 pandemic and resulting “she-cession” have widened these longstanding gender and racial inequities. 

Trump administration rulemakings threaten safe, accessible, and affordable housing for women, children, and families. Under the Biden administration and a new Congress, advocates and policymakers have an opportunity to improve our policies and systems so that every woman, child, and family can obtain safe, accessible, and affordable housing.
