Philly’s workforce secret: A bigger share of women than any major U.S. city

Philadelphia makes just about every top 10 list these days, from the positive (food and beer) to the negative (crime and poverty). But the category where it might stand out the most has flown under the radar: Employment opportunities for women.

But a majority isn’t everything.
