Name an occupation in which women dominate.?

Teaching. Nursing. What else? Interesting - so far all relate to the social/interpersonal fields. Purpose of question - to see which fields women wish to work in. Is it discrimination that men are not in equal numbers in these occupations?

Secretaries. About half doctors, I believe. But the main reason women don't dominate in many fields, is because traditionally, women stayed home while men worked in most fields. //////// There are male masseuses.

Different women will want to work in different fields. Much like men, their choices will differ with the individual. Traditionally women dominate entertainment fields. Acting, live theatre and dance.
