  1. Women hold more jobs than ever before in our history, but there are many professional fields in which the gender balance is still uneven. That's because most women are employed in pink-collar occupations, or jobs that are traditionally held by female workers. These jobs include teacher, nurse, retail worker, child-care provider, waitress, secretary, receptionist, cosmetologist and librarian. Pink-collar jobs usually pay much less than either white-collar or blue-collar jobs, so they may help to explain the wage gap that exists between men and women.
