    What Type of Jobs do you DISLIKE seeing Women do?

    Back before the days of the Feminist Movement—there were certain jobs that were entirely unheard of for women to do. Even though those days are long gone; do you still think that there are jobs that just doesn’t seem appropriate for women? What are they?

    No, because we've moved into a modern era and are focused more now on equality.  Thank goodness for feminism. Feminists, (and the brave men who supported them) are why we can vote and have only had that right for less than 100 years, but now take it for granted! We make up over half the population and there is no good reason we cannot pull the same weight as our male counterparts.  Educated, capable women who participate in all areas of society make for a better human race and they should be allowed to do any job that they have the skills and capability of doing.

      My granddaughter ... a very cute and petite young lady ... joined the Army Reserves. She barely made it through Basic Training with 2 swollen knees and had to be sent home from weekend drill because of horrible menstrual cramps.

      My 4'11 cousin has been in the military her whole adult life and has done just fine, menstrual cramps and all - what's your point exactly? according to skills and ability NOT gender.

      Just adding the footnote that the female needs to make sure she is "equipped" to handle her chosen profession, that's all.

      Rock on with your bad self smile I have done some minor repairs, but have not yet conquered anything to do with a roof - afraid of heights, nothing to do with gender smile.

    A penis model.

    I think that there are women more qualified than some men in very male-dominated occupations. Just because a man is a man doesn't mean that he's automatically better at a particular job than any woman. It's very much dependent on the person and their skill set.

    There are predominantly male and female occupations - most construction workers seem to be male and most childcare workers seem to be female. But I wouldn't think twice seeing a man or a woman doing either. People should do what they're good at, what they're passionate about, and what they love. Gender should play no part.

    Probably if you ask every single woman you will have so many different answers because there is no single solution for so complected issue.
    I personally think that woman lost a lots by doing what man supposed to do.

      What is a man "supposed" to do and what have women lost?

      Have you ever been 1 km underground seeing woman working there. I did and it doesn't look good because they do it only because of the money they can earn

      And I'm sure men do their jobs for free, out of the goodness of their hearts.

      I still don't know what you're implying women have lost by doing "a man's job"?

    In the world in general, I don't think there is a job that I wouldn't want to see a woman do nor do I think there is a job that a woman cannot do.

    With that said, I was once a supervisor for a railroad freight company and there were female conductors and engineers. In every instance it always turned out badly. Not because they couldn't physically do the job, but because they had a poor attitude. Maybe they have had bad experiences being a woman in a male dominated field, but if that were the case, then they should move on to something they liked better. Otherwise they were not helping themselves or other women by sandbagging.

    I dislike women doing only one job and that's being a single parent. its the most stressful job in the world ans the lowest paid.

    I'm not choosing sides but it's hard maintaining the feminine mystic fixing drain pipes, shoveling coal or dangling at the end of a 50 foot pole!
