Unveiling the Realities Faced by Women in Male-Dominated Industries
Are Male-Dominated Industries Still Male-Dominated?
Over the course of 10 episodes, I spoke with a variety of people in different male-dominated industries to determine whether these industries were still predominantly male. While most interviews led to the same conclusion, what was truly shocking were the stories that came out when the recording turned off discussing things anything from miscarriage to sex toys in the workplace.
While these women hailed from different industries, varying in age, life stages, and career levels, it was eye-opening to discover that many faced similar barriers and shared experiences within their respective fields.
Working mothers universally acknowledge the challenge of balancing career and family, but those in male-dominated industries encounter additional obstacles. Through the series we spoke with many women who faced different experiences in similar veins.
