Status of Women in Alaska

Question: Where can I find a comprehensive report on the status of women in Alaska?

Answer: The Institute for Women’s Policy Research published a 79-page report in 2004 titled The Status of Women in Alaska. The report is available at The next most recent comprehensive report that we have found was published in 1984 by the Alaska Women’s Commission, an organization which no longer exists. The 1984 report, titled Alaska Women: A Databook, can be ordered from the University of Alaska Anchorage’s Institute for Social and Economic Research and may also be available through your local library.
