Occupational gender benders

Interesting footnote in the history of gender (dis)integration in the American workplace from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). link

The BLS studied participation by gender in various occupations traditionally dominated by one gender and the change in that participation between 1983 and 2002. For example, during this period:
  • the number of male dressmakers increased by 277%
  • the number of female auto repair workers increased by 369%
I'm reminded of an interview I heard with Tina Weymouth, the bassist of the Talking Heads, telling a story about her son being asked whether he too might play the bass. The story is the young boy immediately rejects the idea, saying with distain, "bass is a girl's instrument."
