I do think it's reasonable that women would be doing better in a recession than men. I think that it's because women are less likely to define themselves based on their jobs. Theoretically, since women historically were paid less than men at similar jobs, we're also used to doing more with less.

That's not to say that men aren't and don't - just that maybe in a bad situation, one or two things are coming in handy to the ladies.

I agree with GLM, we've had to do more with less. I can't speak for women every where, but many women I know are not only having a "Plan B," but have a side hustle to make ends meet. That could also add an extra cushion.

@GLM: You make awesome points.
@LaTonya: Yes, I know all about the side hustle.
Thank you, ladies!
