Some Facts About the New Power of American Women


Men are increasingly becoming victims of women, and many of the reasons are deeply ensconced in the facts surround their growing economic power.

For example:

*  Women currently control 90% of ALL purchases in the USA.

*  In June 2009, women held 49.83% of the country’s 132 million jobs. In health care, for example, women have accounted for 79% of jobs gained (4.52 million), whereas men represent just 1.18 million new jobs. In government, women hold 94% of jobs created (1.76 million), and men account for 12,000 new jobs.

*  In the next 40 years, controlling interest in $70 trillion (that’s a “T”) will be transferred to women - most of it by men.

*  63% of auditors and accountants in the USA are women.

*  59% of ALL college graduates in America are now women and that figure is increasing while at the same time, male college (and high school) graduates are decreasing.

*  Women accounted for 58% of book spending in 2012, up over 55% in 2011 (most were in the romance-fiction genre). 

The age at which American women first marry has increased to 27 years. 

* Since 1970, the marriage rate in America has declined by almost 60%. American divorce rates have skyrocketed since the 1960s.

* American single women now purchase homes at twice the rate of single men.

* In 2013, 74% of all start-up companies were women owned.

* Single women in America spent $20 billion on cars in 2012. American women make 93% of all food purchase decisions. 

* There will be more than 50 million single American women by 2035.

* Women accounted for 57% of total online users in the United States, and according to eMarketer estimates, that means there will be roughly 10 million more females online in the United States than males in just a few years.

* American women are entering prison at a higher rate than any other group.

* In one year alone, 350,000 American women brought lawsuits because their breast implants weren’t what they expected.

* 47% of students in law school are women.

* American women spent 24.4 percent more on butt lifts during the “Great Recession” while the average American income fell 0.6 percent during the same period.

* There are more than 20 million American men with “erectile dysfunction” (according to a Viagra TV commercial).

* A 2013 American Medical Association study, also showed that 400 million testosterone prescriptions were given to American men. 

* The study indicated testosterone therapy increased the risks of heart attack and strokes in men by 29%.

* 61% of pharmacy graduates are women.

* American men commit suicide four times more than American women.

* Of the American veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan, 22 of them are committing suicide every day. 


A recent study titled “The Economic Impact of Women-owned Businesses in the United States” was released by the National Women’s Business Council (NWBC). The NWBC are Advisors to the President, Congress and the Small Business Administration (SBA).

Data highlights from the NWBC study:

* If U.S.–based women-owned businesses were their own country, they would have the 5th largest GDP (Gross Domestic Product) in the world, trailing closely behind Germany, and ahead of countries including France, United Kingdom and Italy.

* If U.S.–based women-owned businesses were their own country, they would have a greater GDP than Canada, India and Vietnam combined.

* Women-owned businesses in America have an annual economic impact of nearly $3 trillion.

* Women-owned firms produce employment for more than 23 million people in the United States, or 16% of our 2008 workforce.

* Approximately 8% of the total labor force work directly for a woman-owned firm.

* There are 175 countries with less population than the number women-owned firms employ (directly and indirectly).

From all the above facts, it should be obvious to you that something is going one that is very detrimental to American men and boys while millions of American women are still claiming to be held back, not equal and “victims” of men.

However, when one looks deeply into the myriad of the problems, one finds at the very core of the adverse affects on men and the dramatic increase in the financial power of American women - is bogus beauty.

What is bogus beauty you ask?
