865,000 women dropped out of the labor force in September 2020

As the economy slowly tries to recover during the coronavirus pandemic, new data shows that women are still being disproportionately impacted by today’s crisis. 

Between August and September, nearly 1.1 million workers ages 20 and over dropped out of the labor force, meaning they are no longer working or looking for work. Of those workers, 865,000 of them were women, a number that is four times higher than the 216,000 men who also left the workforce, according to a National Women’s Law Center analysis.

New York City Ballet Dropped From a Woman’s Photo-Sharing Lawsuit

Two years after a photo-sharing scandal involving explicit images rocked New York City Ballet, a judge has dismissed most of the legal claims made by the woman whose lawsuit started it all.

The woman, Alexandra Waterbury, had sued her ex-boyfriend, Chase Finlay, saying that he had sent sexually explicit photos and short videos of her, taken without her knowledge, to others affiliated with the company.
