I Hear You. I Am You. A St. Louis Region Listening Tour: To better understand the barriers in achieving economic security, the Women's Foundation of Greater St. Louis conducted a listening tour in Spring 2017.  Through this initiative we identified five complex and interwoven barriers that impede women from achieving economic security in the St. Louis Region:

- Safe and affordable childcare for women with young children
- Mental health support for sexual trauma survivors
- Safe, affordable and discrimination-free housing for women and their families
- Accessible and reliable transportation for women
- Education, training and employment pathways for all women
