Women of color are a rapidly growing voter bloc, and they turned out in force during the 2020 general election, according to Democratic data firm TargetSmart.

By the numbers: Hispanic, Asian and other ethnic/racial groups of female voters spiked by more than 20% in 2020 compared to 2016. Turnout by white women increased by just 6.4%.

  • Although turnout among Black women declined slightly from 2016 to 2020, they still made up 17% of the electorate in the critical state of Georgia.
  • They also made up 84% of the women of color who voted in the state.

But, but, but: White women still vote at disproportionate rates, making up 77% of female voters in 2020. White women without a college degree made up nearly half of female voters.

  • Non-Hispanic, white women made up only 60% of the U.S. female population in 2019, according to U.S. Census Bureau data.

Over two-thirds of Black voters favor inclusion of new investments to combat climate change and expand the social safety net in wide-ranging federal spending legislation, per new polling by the firm Hit Strategies shared with Axios.

  • The poll also showed that climate is tied for Black voters' top priority in infrastructure legislation.

Colorado is contributing to the country’s Latino boom.

Driving the news: The Hispanic or Latino population in the U.S. grew by 23% during the past decade, a new census analysis shows. But as Axios' Stef W. Kight reports, some Colorado metros saw a population surge nearly two times that rate.

The NCAA Division I women's basketball tournament in 2022 will use the "March Madness" branding that has long been used only for the men's tournament, the NCAA announced Wednesday.

Why it matters: The announcement comes after gender inequities at the men's and women's NCAA basketball tournaments in 2021 sparked national outrage.
