The economic downward spiral that we are all struggling with has brought women to another historic milestone: for the first time, there are now more women than men employed in the U.S. workforce. As of November, American women were 49.1% of the workforce. With the latest round of job losses -- 80% of which have impacted men, primarily in manufacturing and construction work -- there are no more women carrying the responsibilities of "primary breadwinner" than men. This isn't about women's progress. It's about men's slippage. It's also leading to new conversations -- in millions of homes across the country -- about the "second shift" work related to home and children, of which women are still doing the lion's share.
