GOP presidential candidate Carly Fiorina admitted Sunday she got the statistics wrong on women's employment during last week's debate, but said things still aren't rosy for women under President Barack Obama's leadership.

In the previous debate, Fiorina took flack for sticking by a statement that an undercover video showed a live birth at a Planned Parenthood facility even after the pro-life group that made the video admitted that particular portion of video was stock footage of a baby that likely was a miscarriage.

This time, she admitted to her mistake of saying that 92 percent of jobs lost during the Obama presidency belonged to women.

"Well, in this particular case, the fact checkers are correct," she said Sunday on ABC's "This Week." "The 92 percent, it turns out, was the first three-and-a-half years of Barack Obama's first term. In the final six months of his term, things improved."

Still, she said, the liberal media prefers to attack the messenger and ignore the main point.

"Here's the message: It is factually true that women have been hit very hard by progressive policies. It is factually true that the number of women living in extreme poverty is at the highest rate in recorded history," she said. "It is factually true that 16.1 percent of women live below the poverty line, the highest level in 20 years. It is factually true that 3 million women have fallen into poverty. There is no denying that progressive policies have been bad for women."

On another subject, Fiorina said no one from her team will be attending Sunday's meeting of GOP candidates to discuss the future of debates in Washington, D.C. She said it wasn't logistically possible to get someone there.
