'War on Women' Update: Female Share Of Federal Workforce Declining Under ObamaTopics: Political News and commentaries
Obama gives women free birth control and abortifacets, but as for jobs in the federal workforce ... well, that's an entirely different story - he gives them the lowest percentage in sixteen years.

"Women are still the ones that are carrying the greatest burden when it comes to trying to balance family and work," President Obama said last week to a group of women who serve in the U.S. Congress.More here ...
With this in mind, he is now planning a "White House Summit on Working Families" to take place this summer.
Obama is no doubt preparing to cast stones at the private sector. He really ought to look at his own administration.
Since Obama has been in office, according to data from the Office of Personnel Management, the percentage of women in the civilian federal work force has been shrinking. Before Obama took office, it was already smaller than the percentage in the overall national civilian labor force. Under Obama, it has gotten smaller still.
OPM maintains a database called FedScope that contains historical information going back to 1998 on much of the federal civilian labor force (but excludes, for example, the Judiciary, the White House, the Office of the Vice President, several intelligence agencies and the legislative staff of Congress). According to this database, about 44.4 percent of civilian federal workers were female in 1998.
In 2013, only about 43.5 percent were female -- the lowest percentage in the sixteen years available.
