The most recent Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) monthly jobs report shows that the economy gained 235,000 jobs in August 2021. Women accounted for just 11.9% of job gains last month, gaining 28,000 jobs while men gained 207,000. Women will need nearly 9 straight years of job gains at last month’s  level to recover the nearly 3.0 million net jobs they have lost since February 2020.
