Women in the Workforce

The website Our World in Data, has just published an fantastic overview of key facts and drivers of the rise of female labor force participation. The last century, labor force participation among women has increased significantly. Especially married women have been joining the work force. The graph above plots long-run female participation rates, and shows that participation rates have also slowed down in industrialised (OECD) nations. Also, the number of women in the global labor force who are younger than 25 is slightly less than what it was fifteen years ago, even though the overall female labor force grew by almost 50% over the same period. (source)
