If you could read Kirk's mind, he'd be saying Yes Charlie, that's a girl. Right after Charlie (ST:TOS Episode 2 Charlie X), a raging-hormonal adolescent, sees a girl for the first time, and Kirk just smiles. But if you had to pick from his quotes maybe it would be this one; Worlds may change, galaxies disintegrate, but a woman always remains a woman (ST:TOS The Conscience of the King).
Charts in that paper show that overall recessions have affected men more clearly than women. Men's unemployment peaks at much higher levels.
But then this previous graph shows you how men have consistently been more than the majority in the workplace for thirty years now.
It seems logical to me that if men are the "norm" and more than the majority in the workplace, their jobs would be the most effected by economic downturns. Women, who are less likely to be employed period, are still a subset of the employment population. It also seems likely to me that since the unemployment rate affects only those who are "actively looking for work" during the first x months of their unemployment, it might not include women who couldn't get a job and decided to stay at home, watch the kids, and wait out the downturn. Since men don't stay at home and watch the kids, even when they lose their jobs, they're probably overrepresented in the government's unemployment numbers. But framing the story this way lets angry men blame women for still being employed. Even though, I don't see too many men lining up to be secretaries or social workers or teachers. Sort of like blaming immigrants for taking all our fruit picking jobs when there's an obvious lack of citizens who would like employment in the migrant farm industry. That's why I love this site, Take Our Jobs: it raises the issue of how much of our nation's food supply is picked/grown/cultivated by undocumented workers who can not get citizenship. This site connects unemployed citizens who would like to work in this industry to jobs. I wonder how much interest it's getting. I'm going to bet not a lot.
