高薪职业“她”做主(Women-Domination in High-Paying Careers) - 美国马尾妹 - 花旗国的半边天

       最近,一个名为monster.com的求职网站公布了五个由女性主导的高薪职业,这些职业年薪都超过十万美元。前面我们提到,女性在某些职业领域处于劣势地位,在企业的行政管理领域尤其处于下风。然而在美国仍存在一些以女性为主的高薪职业。比如产科医师或妇科医生、麻醉护士、药剂师和验光师总人数中女性的比例分别为65%,57%、50%和56%,另外,妇女占高级营销经理总人数的比例也高达58%。

A recent article by monster.com, a job-search website, highlighted five women-dominated careers that pay over $100,000 per year.  As previously discussed, women are at a significant disadvantage when it comes to certain careers, especially executive positions within companies.  However, in America, some of the best paying careers dominated by women include: obstetrician/gynecologist (65% women), nurse anesthetist (57% women), pharmacist (50% women), optometrist (56% women), and senior program marketing manager (58% women).

  Noticeably, many of these careers are in the medical field.  More research needs to be done to as to why these fields are women-dominated, but some may think that it is because women are generally thought to have a nurturing and maternal instinct.  These traits would help women to come across as caring and sympathetic when interacting with patients.  The one unexpected career on the list is the senior program marketing manager.  Men traditionally dominate business fields, so the presence of women in the marketing field may signal an upward trend for women in business, and it may open opportunities for women to close the gender gap in other business fields.

   Although many people think that women are a minority in high-paying jobs, this article demonstrates that there are a few fields in which women are very successful.  As women make up a greater percentage of the workforce, hopefully there will be a rise in the number of women who are working in high-paying careers. 

Discussion Questions

 Why do you think many of these women-dominated careers are in the healthcare field?  Do you think that the maternal instinct is a factor in these career choices?  One of the careers, the senior program marketing manager, is unexpected because it is the business field.  Do you think this indicates that women are becoming more dominant in business as well?

讨论:你觉得为什么女性主导的这些职业大多属于医疗领域? 这些职业选择和她们的母性本能有关吗?属于商业范畴的市场营销项目经理出乎意料地成为了女性主导的职业之一,你认为这表明女性在商业领域的地位越来越重要吗?
