A Comprehensive Review of Women in the U.S. Economy

The recently released government document Invest in Women, Invest in America: A Comprehensive Review of Women in the U.S. Economy, prepared by the Congress of the United States Joint Economic Committee, contains lots of detailed information that might of interest to various researchers.

One important message is that women have made significant economic strides over the last several decades. Yet certain persistent issues documented in this report – the pay gap, under-representation of women in top corporate jobs, and the problems of working mothers – still block the achievement of women’s economic equality.

It also provides information relating to the recent economic downturn and how employers are dealing with it.

The full-text of the document is available from the U.S. Government Printing Office’s web site FDsys and also in ProQuest Congressional (search for the title Invest in Women).
