If one likes dealing with a lot of crazy drivers, in America anyway, and being away from home for months at a time, sometimes very hazardous road conditions and many dangers I suppose so. The money is not too good unless you own your own rig or unless you are a Teamster, then all the rules change anyway.
It is a rough life for a family man or woman. It can be a great way to see the country as the miles rack up.
So, yes it can be a great career for the right individuals, male or female.
