In 1980, women made up 43 percent of the U.S. labor force, up from 29 percent in 1950. Fifty-two percent of all women 16 years and older were working or looking for work, compared with 34 percent in 1950. This report examines the reasons for this dramatic rise in the participation of women in the labor force and the consequences for women themselves, their families, and U.S. society in general.
