a majority of women did not work

Meaning that unless it's waged employment it's not work? By which definition an enormous chunk of the world's population over the ages, men as well as wome, have never worked.

I know that's drifting the thread, but it annoys me when I come across people using that lazy and innacurate way of talking, and the last few days I've kept on coming across people in the media doing it.
