Black Women’s Best Framework


Coined by Janelle Jones (2020), “Black women best” is an economic principle that argues if Black women—who, since our nation’s founding, have been among the most excluded and exploited by the rules that structure our society—can one day thrive in the economy, then it must finally be working for everyone." Policymakers can use this framework to achieve long and overdue action that builds long-term economic resiliency and provides immediate economic security in a crisis.
