There is no greater time to be an American woman, but through the constant negativity in the media, it’s hard to cut through the noise and focus on results. While there may be more work to do, women are thriving in today’s America in many measurable ways. It is a subject matter that White House Senior Advisor, Ivanka Trump, has been increasingly passionate about, not only in America, but around the globe. Let’s cut through the noise and look at how women are thriving in America.
1) Female unemployment reached its lowest in 65 years in both May and September of 2018.
Women’s unemployment was 3.6% in 2018. The last time women’s unemployment was that low was October of 1953.
As a country, as of February of this year, we are currently sitting at a national unemployment rate of about 3.8%. The last time it was this low was in December of 2000. Unemployment was at its highest in December of 1982 when it was at 10.4%. In the past decade, the highest unemployment we have seen happened in November of 2010 at 9% unemployment. It’s never been easier for women to find work in America. With low unemployment rates, women are taking the workforce by storm!
