A lot has changed for women in the workplace.  But apparently some things remain the same.  The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics has released a list of the top 20 leading occupations of women which probably looks a lot like it did years ago.  The jobs and percent occupied by women are:

Secretaries/Admin Assistants (96.8%), Childcare Workers (95%), Accounting Clerks (92.3%), Registered Nurses (92%),  Teacher Assistants (91.6%),  Receptionists (91.5%), Maids (89.5%), Nursing aides (88.5%), Home Care Aids (85.2%),  Office Clerks (82%), Elementary & Middle School Teachers (81.9%),  Cashiers (74.4%), Wait Staff/Servers (71.6%), Office Supervisors (71.3%), Customer Service Reps (67.9%), Accountants (61.8%), Retail Sales (51.9%), Retail Supervisors (44.1%), Cooks (41.5%) and Managers (34.1%).   Overall, women now comprise 47.4% of the workforce.
