Learn: What is the situation right now?

  • California has the smallest gap between average income for women and men in the United States: women make $0.89 for every $1.00 a man makes (PDF Ref, pg 8). We can reasonably extrapolate that applies to Marin County as well. (Please contact us if you have data for Marin County specifically.)
  • According to a 2018 Marin IJ article, “…in Marin County…the No. 1 violent crime is domestic violence” (ref).
