"I love working in a male-dominated job! I just like to prove that girls can do it just as well as boys can."

While women still earn less than men on average for doing the same work, we've made a lot of progress in the workforce in the past few decades. However, there are still plenty of fields that are dominated by men and can cause unfair hurdles for the women employed by those companies. Too often, women in male-dominated industries are forced to work harder to gain accolades or respect.
