20 Career Paths Dominated by Women Today

Women seem to dominate white-collar jobs these days, which makes me wonder what is happening to all of the men. Certainly the advancements that women have made in professional fields is laudable, but is there a risk that we have done so at a cost and somehow left boys behind? I believe the graduation rates for 4-year universities reflect a similar trend.

From the article:

"According to a new report by Forbes, there are 20 occupations today, where women now outnumber men. As you go through the list, there is one essential commonality that stands out: Most of these roles were once considered the epitome of male dominance across industries."

The article provides the numbers for the accounting/finance field:

Finance (Accounting, Auditing, Insurance, Assurance, etc.)

  1. Accountants & Auditors (61.8%)
  2. Financial managers (54.7%)
  3. Insurance Underwriters (62.8%)
  4. Tax Examiners, Collectors and Revenue Agents (73.8%)
  5. Budget Analysts (59.3%)
  6. Tax Preparers (65.9%)
  7. Claims Adjusters, Appraisers, Examiners & Investigators (60.6%)
  8. Financial Specialists (66.6%)
