<<Sorry to hear about your accident familyceo.

Thanks for putting down another stereotype about working men and women.



Hardly a stereotype. A fact. The labor force participation rates of women decline a lot faster than those of men. Combine that with the fact that women are usually younger than the men they marry and you have women working significantly shorter number of years than their husbands, on average.

Of course, many may argue that this is simply evidence that women are smarter than men.
