In Recession, Women Are Returning to Work or Increasing Hours

Woman illlustration I found an article in Forbes Why Women Who Opted Out Are Opting Back In about the increase of women who are returning to work as the economy is crumbling, either as a response to a partner being out of work, or indeed to make the most of the work opportunities they havewhile they still have them. Indeed some of the women interviewed say they are returning as proof to their daughters that the responsibility for providing for a family should not rest wholly with a father. It makes sense, as many of the industries that are hit hardest by this recession are male-dominated such as construction, manufacturing and finance. In fact, as the article discusses, in the US unemployment rates are higher for men than women, proving that it does take working women as well as men to keep an economy afloat.
