open more careers up to women

A guide by Penelope (San Diego, CA)

Products sampled from this guide:
There are still a lot of jobs that aren't really open to women. I can say this with certainty because I work in one of them. Business, law, math and investing have remained predominantly male as an ever increasing percentage of women are working. But I have remained one of the few women in my office. There are any number of reasons for this, primarily that women aren't encouraged early on to pursue these fields or even made aware of their variety or interest. But also because when women begin these career paths they are faced with a lot of discriminatory practices and perceptions. It is my hope that we can overcome this if we all work together.
