Why the Workforce Needs More Women
Now more than ever, it seems like there's an equal amount of men and women in the workforce.

More women are graduating from school, waiting later to have families, and solely concentrating on getting ahead in their career.

In fact, according to a Wall Street Journal article, 57 percent of annual college graduates are women.

But, the women who do leave the workforce to start a family are finding it harder to come back in. Why is that?

Sharon Lechter, CPA, shares why it's hard for some women to rejoin the workplace, as well as why the workforce needs more women.
