"Women's lives have changed dramatically over the past few decades. Behind the change is the rise of a new economy based on services rather than manufacturing, which rewards the educated and encourages women to go to work. American Women brings you all-important demographic data showing the size of the female population, its changing age distribution, rising educational attainment, and evolving racial composition. It also includes details on the characteristics of Asians, the latest labor force projections, up-to-date population projections, and a new chapter on women's time use."
