Employment rate for women is 70%, for men it is 79.3% - https://www.ons.gov.uk/employmentandlabourmarket/peopleinwork/employmentandemployeetypes/bulletins/uklabourmarket/feb2017
Unemployment is slightly lower for women than for men. Most of the increase in employment rate over the last few years is attributable to women joining the workforce.
If you turn up at a house during working hours, you would expect to find 3 women for every two men, so women are still over represented even when you adjust for that.
I personally never watch linear TV, everything is downloaded or on-demand streaming.
