It all depends on how you want to measure it, but women, if they aren't already the majority of the workforce, soon will be.

According to a new survey from Allstate-National Journal, most people think that there is something positive in that happening.

Of the  1,000 adult respondents that answered, fifty-six percent of the people thought  that the influx of women into the workplace is “encouraging, and it will have a positive impact on the country because the economy will benefit from a workforce that represents more of the unique talents and skills offered by women.”

But, 32 percent said this transition was “troubling and it will have a negative impact on the country.  many people are against it because of what could be termed family values. A shifting away from the traditional family structure where women could raise children and run the household.”
