Working Women Hit A Milestone

workingwomen

In my New York Women in Communications discussion group, there’s been lots of talk about how and whether an economic downturn disproportionately affects women and minorities…particularly those of us in editorial, marketing or corporate communications, or advertising.  Though communications had undoubtedly been hit, there may be some good news for working women. It seems women have finally hit a milestone of sorts. Throughout the 1990s and into the 2000s, women remained less than 49 percent of the work force, However, a recent jobs report shows the percentage of female workers has now passed 49 percent and my cross the 50 percent mark for the first time in history.
