The article presents facts and figures related to professional women in the U.S. It is stated that the number of working women has increased from 501 million in 1900, to 18.4 million in 1950, 67.8 million in 2007. The number of working women is forecasted to reach 76 million by 2014. The number of women in the labor force is forecasted to increase by almost 10.9% between 2004 and 2014, while a smaller 9.1% increase is projected for men. This means men's share of the labor force will drop, from 53.6% to 53.2% between 2004 and 2014.
