    Why Do Men Dominate Many Of The Stereotypical Women’s Professions, Such As Hairdressing And Cooking? Having recently had a discussion with some female friends on this matter, I’m keen to learn of other people’s opinions. I am a final year male Computer Science student and therefore try and see nearly everything in the world using a logical approach backed with hard scientific evidence.

    I found it ironic that many of the professions that society associates with being female orientated are dominated by men.

    Top UK hair stylists include:
    -Trevor Sorbie
    -Charles Worthington
    -Guy Kremer
    In fact 12 out of the 13 “UK Top Hair Stylists” were men (UK Hairdressers, 2009).

    2011 James Beard Awards: Chefs and restaurants finalists:
    -Jose Andres
    -Gary Danko
    -Suzanne Goin
    -Paul Kahan
    -Charles Phan
    (Eatocracy, 2011).
    80% of award winners are male.

    The response I received from my female friends was that ‘it’s a man’s world, and therefore it is more difficult for women to be at the top of a profession’.

    In my eyes, the fact that we had a female prime minister over 30 years ago that ruled for 11 years is a clear display that if a woman can obtain what may be the highest employment position in the country for over a decade, then surely there is the *possibly* for any woman to obtain any role? Especially, as gender equality has been improving over the last 30 years (Review of equality statistics, 2008).

    So basically my question is:

    Are the effects of inequality in women in the workplace a strong enough factor to prevent women from obtaining the highest job positions in an industry / job sector, or are men simply slightly more capable at these top level positions, as voted for by a mixed gender panel of judges?

    p.s. I am a firm believer of the best person for the job, regardless of gender or race etc.

      You forgot fashion, the best designers are male!

      To this day men dominate the high ends of pretty much every profession, pretty good for a group that makes up 47.3% of the worlds population!

    • Curator says:

      It is for American Restaurants, it doesn’t matter the nationality of the chefs.
      There is a list here of the winners and I think some are non Americans, but I don’t recognise any that I know for sure if they are foreign.

    Would You Be Nervous Cooking For President Barack Obama And His Family? Alan Wong seems calm and collected, despite some very important visitors he is expecting at his award-winning Honolulu restaurant(s).

    Wong, a James Beard recipient (which is like an Academy Award to chefs) operates Alan Wong’s on King Street and the Pineapple Room and the first family frequents his restaurants.

    “It’s all pretty surreal,” he told CNN’s Ed Henry.

    We can only imagine. We have a hard enough time cooking eggs for family on Christmas morning, let alone President Barack Obama and his family.

    The Obamas spend many a vacation in the president’s native Hawaii and Wong claims they’re quite the foodies.

    “They’re adventurous. They once ordered the tasting menu,” he said.

    Would you be nervous cooking for President Barack Obama and his Family?

    I would.
