In this women in the workforce activity, students will examine graphs on education, earnings, and workforce participation for men and women between 1940 and 2010. Specifically, students will study a graph of the percentages of managers who were women from 1940 to 2009 to understand the connection between the increase in these percentages and the feminist movement of the 1960s. This activity takes approximately 60-120 minutes to complete.
