Fact Sheets

The most recent Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) monthly jobs report shows that the economy gained 943,000 jobs in July 2021. Women accounted for 68.8% of job gains last month, gaining 649,000 jobs while men gained 294,000. Nevertheless, women will need nearly 5 straight months of job gains at last month’s high level to recover the nearly 3.1 million net jobs they have lost since February 2020.
