About the Shriver Report

The Shriver Report is a groundbreaking series of reports that chronicle the status of American women and explore seismic shifts in the American culture & society affecting women today.

About A Woman's Nation Changes Everything

For more than one year, Maria Shriver and the Center for American Progress explored the transformation of the way Americans live and work. Included here is research by leading authorities on working families and the United States labor market, government, business, media and faith. The findings combine the work of academics, economists and pollsters with a collection of diverse essays from famous and less well-known Americans as well as on-the-ground reporting from around the country.

Among the findings, is what often happens in the face of sweeping change: Some of our institutions lag behind and don’t yet reflect this new dynamic. Government, business, the media and our faith communities, in many cases, still cling to outdated models of who works and who cares for our families.

About A Woman's Nation Takes on Alzheimer's

Maria Shriver and the Alzheimer's Association—the leader in Alzheimer care, support and research—released The Shriver Report: A Woman's Nation Takes on Alzheimer's on Oct. 14 to highlight the epidemic's effect on women as caregivers, advocates and people living with this disease.

The Shriver Report: A Woman’s Nation Takes on Alzheimer’s demonstrates that women are at the epicenter of the Alzheimer’s epidemic. It is a comprehensive, multi-disciplinary anthology of every facet of Alzheimer's disease—medical, sociological, political and economic. The academic core of the report is composed of expert reviews of issues and trends, with analysis backed by the nationwide Alzheimer’s Association Women and Alzheimer’s Poll of 3,118 adults, including more than 500 Alzheimer caregivers.
