On one hand they are fighting to get equal access to the workforce. On the other, they want to be recognized for their labor that isn't market-wise.
Anyway : GDP is a measure who doesn't give a fuck about men or women. It just measures the power of an economy, that's all. Why would anyone care about women in this ? What does it changes ? What is the point ?
I never heard of any economist jacking off to the numbers a company made in a year and go : "aw, yeah, take that you bitch ! You ain't makin' theses numbers !"
