Nearly a million new jobs were created last year, and women didn't even get 50,000 of them, according to Labor Department Statistics. Women were given only 47,000 of the 984,000 jobs created between January 2010 and January 2011, to be exact.*

That just about eats up any consolation women were taking from the fact that they didn't get hit as hard by layoffs. Seven out of 10 job losses during the economic downturn were suffered by men.
