This paper briefly discusses trends in society that may stop women advancing in their careers or entering a traditionally male type of employment. It explains that, while changes have taken place over the years, there is still much that needs to be improved before equal opportunities in job markets can exist.

From the Paper:

"Gender differences in the workplace has long been the subject of anti-discrimination laws and movements. This is especially true of male-dominated industries such as engineering, firefighting, police work, space travel, etc. Currently society appears to support women doing any kind of work they wish, whether it be a direction that women traditionally choose or not. Many more paths are open to women than was previously the case. However, the attitude of some men (and even women) to this new social paradigm is often more difficult to change than the paradigm itself. When examples are considered of women in traditionally male-dominated professions, it is clear that some attitudes leave much to be desired. On the other hand, this kind of negative attitude in many cases serves simply to inspire women further to make a success under these difficult circumstances."
