The gender gap in the workforce between men and women has been in the spotlight for the last few years. With different reports speculating on how we can close that gap - from telling us to change how we think to telling us we need to put more women in charge. A WEF report even states it will take us 217 years before this gap is closed.

Now according to a recent WEF Report: Women are more likely than men to be knocked out of their U.S. jobs by automation in the next eight years, and they'll find half as many opportunities to land new positions unless there's a new effort to retrain them.

We take a look at what a few of you had to say about this subject and other topics, highlighting some of them here.

Tell us what you think. Will automation see more women than men knocked out of U.S jobs? Will automation widen the gender gap? Or do you feel this is all hype? Let us know your thoughts on this subject in the comments below or over on the full article.
