dc.description.abstract[Excerpt] In 2010, women represented 46.7 percent of the United States labor force, a slightly larger share than at the start of the recession in 2007. Overall 71.9 million women were employed or looking for work, representing 58.6 percent of all women aged 16 and over. As the overall workforce has become more diverse, so have working women. Among women in the labor force, 13.1 percent are black, 4.7 percent are Asian and 12.8 percent are of Hispanic ethnicity. Along all racial groups, men are more likely to be employed than are women, however black women are almost as likely as black men to be employed—a fact that reflects the lower likelihood of black men working compared to other men. The gender gap is widest among Hispanics—as Hispanic men are more likely than other men to be employed, while Hispanic women are less likely than other women to be employed.
