Women earn 62% of associate degrees

Women earned 62 percent of associate degrees awarded in 2008-09, concludes the federal  Condition of Education report.

Some 787,300 associate’s degrees were awardedin 2008-09, a 41 percent increase in a decade. One third of degrees were in liberal arts and sciences, general studies, and humanities; another fifth were in health fields. While psychology degrees more than doubled in 10 years,  engineering and engineering technologies, a heavily male field, showed an 8 percent decline.

About 57 percent of all bachelor’s degrees conferred in 2008–09 were awarded to women, the report found.

Long-term unemployment has hit hardest at men with a high school diploma or less. The trends are not good.

Feminists on campuses across America are declaring victory and closing women’s centers, saying “our job is now done” – not!

Just look around you, women’s centers began opening on university campuses in large numbers only after the number of females matriculating neared or exceeded parity with men.
