NYTimes: Where Working Women Are Most Common

According to this article from the New York Times, 70% of women nationwide between the ages of 25-54 are employed while 80% of men are. View the maps of men and women side-by-side to compare which areas employ more men or women. While only 26% of women these ages were unemployed in 1999, 30% are now.

Considering: "women nationwide now are more likely to graduate than men," these statistics should probably be more similar.

 

Putting Youth on the Map

This summer I worked as a web designer for the UC Davis Center for Regional Change (CRC), creating a site for their Putting Youth on the Map (PYOM) project.  We were totally starting from scratch - organizing content, while designer a user-friendly site that would be accessible for all ages and abilities. This site had to be interesting for youth, yet business-like for professionals. It was an interesting challenge as I also worked remotely, skyping in weekly with the PYOM and CRC team. Made entirely by my own hand coding (HTML/CSS/JavaScript&jQuery) a site was completed within 2 months! Check it out!  This is the link that I worked from this summer, it has since been moved to a new URL and is about to be moved permanently - stay tuned for the new link!
