780,000 More Women Unemployed Today Than When Obama Took Office

By Michael W. Chapman

The number of unemployed is for women ages 16 and older in the  civilian work force and is seasonally adjusted, according to data from  the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).

The BLS data also show that the unemployment rate for women in June  was 8.0 percent, up from 7.9 percent in May.  That’s also up from 7.0  percent in January 2009 when Obama became president.

The overall unemployment rate (men and women) is 8.2 percent. For  women, the unemployment rate has gone up fairly consistently since  January 2009, with a few ups and downs, but reaching as high as 9.0  percent in November 2010 and staying in the mid-8 percent range for most  of 2009, 2010 and 2011.

The unemployment rate for women in January of this year was 8.3  percent, or 5,997,000 unemployed, an increase of 992,000 since the  president was inaugurated.
