The UN report has also raised concerns about new and more restrictive voter status laws such as Alabama, which suspect that these laws may deprive women voters of their rights, that they are more likely to be renamed by marriage, and more May be poor. The UN report condemns the well-known gender wage gap that plagues American women and points out that this is actually the most widespread for the most educated (although blacks, Latinos and indigenous women have the lowest income). Experts believe that federal law does not actually require equal pay, which is a serious problem. The United Nations report also criticized the severe loss of wages and wealth suffered by women during childbirth and stated that “we are shocked by the lack of mandatory standards for maternity, maternal mothers and caregivers who are responsible for workplace accommodation and are necessary for international human rights law. “It is shameful that the United States is the only developed country that does not guarantee paid maternity leave and is one of the only two countries in the world that do not provide such human rights.” Experts pointed out that international standards require maternity leave and that best practice requirements should also provide paid leave for the second parent. Experts also found that the Great Depression had a disproportionately negative impact on women because they were too many poor people who lost their homes in the mortgage crisis. The United Nations also pointed out that by reducing social protection programs designed to stimulate the economy, especially ethnic minorities and single mothers, women are more hurt than men.
