Women's labour force participation and contribution to family income

In households in which both spouses are gainfully employed, the woman brings in approximately 30% of household income. This significant and increasing contribution is critical in raising many households above the poverty line and in alleviating want in some of the poorest households. The percentage is, of course, much higher for households headed by a woman.
