Surina Khan, July 20, 2016, The Mercury News—Here is a snapshot of the state of women in Santa Clara County today: A single mother most likely uses half of her wages for housing. Add in the cost of paying for childcare, which can be more than 35 percent of her income for one child, and chances are she won't have enough money left to pay for food, clothes, healthcare and transportation. Out of 10 women in Santa Clara County, three work in low-wage jobs and one did not graduate from high school.
