As the nation charts a course out of the Great Recession and towards a brighter tomorrow, women's participation in the labor market and power over household purchases will be critical for economic growth. Women comprise half the workforce, and receive the majority of bachelor's degrees granted today. Women's earnings are crucial for family well-being, women's purchasing power drives the economy and women's leadership in the boardroom is a proven boon for businesses' bottom line. Because of all this and more, investing in women means investing in the nation as a whole. This book provides a comprehensive overview on women's position in the economy today. Decades of progress mean women are poised to lead the nation's next chapter of economic growth. Yet roadblocks remain and these blockades are hampering women's ability to reach their full economic potential. (Imprint: Nova)
