In December 2019, when coronavirus was still but a distant headline in China, women surpassed men at 50.04% of the labor force.
It was a fleeting breakthrough.
Nearly 11 million jobs held by women disappeared from February to May, erasing a decade of job gains by women in the labor force.
In June, women regained 2.9 million positions, but those jobs, which are largely in the hospitality field, remain insecure as the spread of coronavirus forces new closures.
I wrote about this about a month ago. The pandemic is going to be absolutely crippling to American women.
