Government labor statistics show that from January through the end of April 2012, over twice as many women were lost out of the workforce as were men.

While men lost jobs to women in 2009 and part of 2010, the reverse trend began in 2010 and continued into May 2012. By May 2012, over 488,000 women had become unemployed since January 1. During that same Period of time, fewer than half as many men (net loss) became unemployed in America: about 185,000 men.
