Women’s History Month

This month is Women’s History Month so please visit our homepage to view a list of selected databases on women. If you’re looking for some fast facts the U.S. Census has created a document covering subjects such as Motherhood, Earnings, Education, Voting and Businesses.

For example:

894,000

The projected number of bachelor’s degrees that will be awarded to women in the 2007-08 school year, who are also projected to earn 380,000 master’s degrees during this period. Women would, therefore, earn 59 percent of the bachelor’s and 61 percent of the master’s degrees awarded during this school year. In addition, women would earn a majority (52 percent) of first-professional degrees, such as law and medical.
