The NYT ran a front page story on the drop in women's labor force participation rates (LFPR) since 2000. The decline in LFPR for women is noteworthy because many economists have sought to blame the decline in LFPR for men on various problems unique to men. The fact that the LFPR for women has declined also suggests that the problem is on the demand side of the labor market, not the pathologies that afflict the men who are dropping out.
