Women's State of Mind Study: What Members Said

   By SheSpeaksTeam  Feb 20, 2024

Amidst the upcoming presidential election, concerns about the economy and unrest in multiple areas around the world, SheSpeaks fielded the Women's State of Mind Survey last month and over 1,200 of you took the time to weigh-in and share your opinions with us! 

While macro economic indicators remain strong for the US economy, the latest SheSpeaks 2024 Women’s State of Mind survey indicates that women do not feel confident about the US economy. 

Top Line Study Findings

Below are are some highlighted insights that emerged from our study.
  1. The country is headed in the wrong direction
    • Women overwhelming believe the country is headed in the wrong direction, up 40% from Dec 2023
  2. The 2024 Election is still wide open
    • 41% of women say they are undecided about who they will vote for in the 2024 election
  3. Women are increasingly concerned about the economy
    • 51% think the economy is getting worse, up 34% from 2023
  4. In addition to the economy, national security & healthcare are the two biggest issues for the 2024 election
    • Top 4 issues for the 2024 election are:
      • Economy (61%)
      • Healthcare (53%)
      • National security (46%)
      • Social issues, including abortion rights (44%)
      • Lowest on the list: Climate change (22%)
  5. While declining in importance, Network TV is still the #1 news source for women

I am always open to learning new things and trying better at getting involved with these types of things is definitely an eye-opener and especially being a mom. I don?t want my kids to grow up and have to see that this has gotten worse than better.

Since the candidates for the presidential election have not been finalized, it makes sense that women are undecided about who they will vote for :)

I guess my answers were in the minority here. I do not think the country is headed in the wrong direction, and I can't believe people have not decided on who to vote for! I am also saddened to see social issues so low on priority.
