Yes, Virginia, the Recession Really Has Hurt Women
Hands down, this post from California NOW recieves the award for best title of a blog addressing the gloomy issue of the economic recession. The post discusses a briefing hosted by the California Budget Project, which challenged this whole idea of a "mancession." California NOW pulled out these (un)savory data points from the briefing:
- The number of families supported solely by working mothers rose from 4.7% in 2006 to 8.5% in 2009.
- California’s typical working woman earned 89.1 cents for every dollar earned by the typical working man in 2009.
