There was a piece on National Public Radio this week about the widening gap between male and female college graduates. The latest figures show that there were 200,000 more female graduates than male. Why should this be? There could be a number of reasons. The female population is slightly greater than the male but thatâ€™s probably not it. Maybe it is because girls are more conscientious in high school and less party-ers in college. So perhaps they start out closer in numbers but more girls graduate. Perhaps young women today see the tragedy of the older woman left divorced and skill-less. Itâ€™s certainly not enough to count on being a wife and mother anymore. Unfortunately, women are still under-represented in upper management and still make less in comparison to men. But maybe this will change as more and more women graduate from college widening the gap. Unless, of course, affirmative action for men is started.
