AARP Bulletin

"From December 2009 through February 2011, men were hired for some 1.1 million jobs while women picked up only about 115,000, according to Sophia Koropeckyj, a managing director at Moody's Analytics, who examined payroll data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Put another way, says Jeff Hayes, a senior research associate at the Washington-based Institute for Women's Policy Research, men regained 19 percent of the jobs they lost from their lowest employment level, which was in January 2010. Women recovered just 6 percent of the jobs they lost from their lowest point, which was September 2010."
