Online Resource: Data on Women Workers

I wanted to write about BLS Data on Women Workers to show what information is out there that the federal government maintains. How we use that information is up to us, but I suspect amny plaintiff's lawyer should give this a good look:

"The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) provides extensive labor market data on women (and other worker groups) through its news releases, publications, and website. Users have access to data on women’s employment, unemployment, and earnings by industry, occupation, education, age, marital status, and other characteristics. Data are also available on how women use their time and on workplace injuries and illnesses experienced by women. All of these data are also available for men.
