The Anti-Pink Collar Movement


Long before Barbie became the overachieving job hopper she is today, someone somewhere had to make all of those career choices for her. From pilot to paleontologist, Barbie has held more than 80 jobs in her life span. Real women change jobs considerably less often, but just like Barbie, they have limitless options.

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, women still rule in traditional jobs. Statistics show that today's women most often hold jobs as teachers, secretaries, receptionists, bookkeepers, nurses and cashiers. But it should come as no surprise that women also choose from a host of nontraditional careers.
