Women are taking over, creating a womens world, men will be in the minority ,having to prove themselves to groups of majority women
Earlier this year, women became the majority of the workforce for the first time in U.S. history. Most managers are now women too. And for every two men who get a college degree this year, three women will do the same. For years, women’s progress has been cast as a struggle for equality. But what if equality isn’t the end point? What if modern, postindustrial society is simply better suited to women? A report on the unprecedented role reversal now under way— and its vast cultural consequences
- Women under 30 are making more money than men under 30 in 147 out of 150 cities.
- For the first time in America, women workers outnumber the men. The statistic hovers around 50 percent (plus or minus one). But high-paying jobs, too, are being filled by an increasing number of women.
- That said, there’s still a salary gap at 77 cents on the dollar.
- Of the 15 job categories expected to grow the most over the next decade, men dominate just two of those fields: janitorial workers and computer engineers.
Swedish women are increasingly represented in professions long dominated by men and those requiring long university education, according to Statistics Sweden (SCB) figures published in the Metro daily.
Currently 39 percent of women in Sweden have a higher education qualification, in comparison to 31 percent for men. While the figure for both groups is expected to increase, the gap is expected to grow - to 50 and 36 percent respectively by 2030.
By 2030 women are expected to be in the majority among lawyers, economists, vets, architects, agronomists, doctors, dentists, theologians and scientists. Men are expected to continue to dominate professions such as engineers and police, and within forestry and transport-related subjects.
