Women Now Outnumber Men in American Workforce

Women have come to outnumber men in the American workforce for the first time since the immediate aftermath of the Great Recession, according to the latest jobs report released on Friday.

Labor Department data showed women held 50.04% of jobs in December, bringing their share of the workforce to 76.2 million people.

Women gained 139,000 jobs compared to the 6,000 that men obtained in the same period. 

The gains for women now reflect the growing industries which employ women at greater rates within the economy, experts say.
