After 40+ years I'm awfully tired of hearing that women are oppressed victims. Their college graduation rate is higher than men and has been since 1982, and salaries given the same life choices are the same or higher. Brown supposedly is looking at poverty. For that, I suggest a smaller government and a freer market so women stop looking to Uncle Sam as their Sugar Daddy. Very few children grow up poor if Mom and Dad are married.
From 1999–2000 to 2009–10, the percentage of degrees earned by females remained between approximately 60 and 62 percent for associate's degrees and between 57 and 58 percent for bachelor's degrees. In contrast, the percentages of both master's and doctor's degrees earned by females increased from 1999–2000 to 2009–10 (from 58 to 60 percent and from 45 to 52 percent, respectively.)
