President Obama: "When Women Succeed, America Succeeds"

Yesterday, the President hosted a meeting with women in Congress to discuss the 2014 women's economic agenda, and the administration's plan to expand opportunity for every American.

Here's the state of women in the workforce, in three charts. Take a look and pass it on.
