The Millennial Women: Smart, Talented and Kickass!

Women have long been struggling to be accepted as male equals when it comes to the workforce. Although the case today is way better than that of the decades ago, women still have a lot to prove to be able to stabilize the gender gap in industries.

Jobs that used to be fit for men are now being embraced by women. Fields of interest are now more accepting to employ women because of the demand. Here are five man-dominated fields that women can join to their liking.
