"Women Are The Only Group For Whom Employment Growth Lagged Behind Population Growth From 2009 To 2011." "Out of all the groups represented in Pew's survey - including blacks, whites, Hispanics and Asians - women are the only group for whom employment growth lagged behind population growth from 2009 to 2011.
