What are some tradtionally feminine occupations?

I can think of nanny, air hostess, nurse, of the top of my head, anymore? And what makes a profession/ job 'feminine'? p.s is a dental higienist a feminine profession?

Yes I would say a dental hygienist probably would be. Adding to you list, pre-school workers, hairdressers, florists, psycologists, administrators. Any job is feminine if the vast majority who study or apply for it are women
