Beyonce sings, ‘Who Run the World? Girls!’ and she might be right.

For the first time, the number of women in the workforce in February was higher than pre-pandemic levels. The expectation that women, especially college-educated women, would quit their jobs during the pandemic was proven false.

Harvard professor Claudia Goldin, the author of ‘Understanding the Economic Impact of Covid-19 on Women,’ says the findings are a mixed blessing: “Far more mothers, and other women who are caregivers, have been stressed, frustrated and anxious because they did not leave their job.”

Until 2020, recessions always hit men harder than women.
