A recent survey reveals 2 in 3 Black women are breadwinners; 8 in 10 worry about discrimination or mistreatment. A new poll finds 2 out of every 5 Black women in California are just one paycheck away from financial instability.

The findings could be important for political strategists. The results quantify how Black women's view on politics economics, family issues, and everyday life may vary from demographic groups.

There were some eye opening findings that reveal what Black women face:

  • 2 in 5 Black women find it challenging to pay for basic expenses
  • 4 in 5 Black women report difficulty dealing with inflation
  • 8 in 10 Black women report a top concern is being discriminated against or mistreated because of their race or gender
  • 4 in 10 Black women said racism and discrimination have limited their income and earning capacity

These results indicate that the Legislature's policies aimed at protecting women aren't necessarily helping Black women.
