US women win the education war

This graph show the rise of women obtain BA and BS degrees from US Universities.  As you can see male educational level has utterly stagnated in the US while women's education obtainment has raised significantly.

So what does this mean.  Two things: first women obviously are going to have advantages in the information age work force.  But since women are generally always paid less than men the rising number of women in the information economy will mean work requiring University degree will become lowered paid.  This is a sad trend that we always see with women coming in to any section of the work force.
