I was only 9 in 1980 and most moms were still sahms. IME, moms went back to work

My mother cleaned, did laundry when I was in school. I was never in the kitchen when she cooked. This did not affect me at all when I left to do my own cleaning, laundry and cooking. Shrug.

30+ years ago there were more SAHMs but I do not think that the SAH/WOH ratio has changed much between 1990 and today.

Yes.

"For four decades, the number of women entering the workplace grew at a blistering pace, fostering a powerful cultural and economic transformation of American society. But since the mid-1990's, the growth in the percentage of adult women working outside the home has stalled, even slipping somewhat in the last five years and leaving it at a rate well below that of men."

1980 was the year I went on active duty in the Air Force. Hard to believe it was 30 years ago.

Why do you think there have been major changes in the last 3 years?

While due to the economy hitting "men" jobs more that "woman" jobs in recent years the ratio of male/females workers has changed and some studies show that there may be more woman in the work force than men at the moment. But that is due to a decrease in male workers not an increase in female workers. I found absolutely nothing to indicate that there has been a huge increase in female workers since 2006.

How fascinating.
