Women in the Work Force

The NY Times has an interesting article about how hard economic trends in recent years are taking their toll on women and their involvement in the workforce.

Women in the workplace are being afflicted by the same troubles as men. And they are responding as men have, by dropping out or disappearing for a while...
What are your thoughts on these trends? Have you seen evidence of this phenomenon in your own life or the lives of family members and friends?
