Week 9:
Most university graduates are women
Its the choice of universities that is different
Women are more likely going into nurturing courses, sociology, anthropology
Men are more likely going into science fields: engineering, science, math, physics,
etc.
Women are going into business much more likely than they used to
When women go into a particular field, men start moving out of that field over time
Then it becomes female dominated because the men move out
The women are going into university, but men and women are going into different
fields of study
It makes a big difference for the jobs that men and women get
The gender gap hasnt changed much in the last 30 years
Women would make about 70 cents to every dollar men made, now its 75 cents to
every dollar made
Men are going into engineering jobs, which are highly paid jobs
Women continue to earn less than men because of the field of study they choose
Women are encouraged to enrol in university because women would be able to have
access to jobs and make the same kind of money that men did
