Millennial Women Are Crushing the Job Market

This just in: working millennial women are killin’ it. This level of workforce participation among women aged 25 to 34 hasn’t been seen since the year 2000, marking a striking contrast with the past few years. Since December of 2015, millennials have accounted for 86 percent of growth in the workforce of working women aged 25 to 54 years old. These women are also dominating the workforce compared to their male counterparts, lowering the gap between the percentage of young working women and men to 12.3 percentage points—the lowest working gender divide we’ve ever experienced. Why the sudden surge? The numbers can be partly attributed to the fact that millennial women are more likely than men to have a college degree now, and the average age for marriage and childbearing keeps climbing
