The gender pay gap is still very real — and that’s depressing as hell. A woman can do anything she wants, do just about anything a man can do, but her paycheque might never reflect that. That’s a dismal statement to write in 2018 but it’s also a sad fact. Yes, there are changes and policies and laws that are in the work but we still have a long way to go.
That being said, there are loads of jobs at which women are kicking ass. Whether it’s because we have more to prove, have more at stake, or are simply just that awesome, it doesn’t matter. All you need to know is women rock, at whatever they set their mind to. We looked at various salaries and the ratio of females to males in some positions based on information from PayScale; some jobs you might’ve known, others might surprise.
