Women have infiltrated traditionally "masculine" fields from welder to police officer to pro athlete. But certain fields are still considered "non-traditional" careers for women because they make up 25 percent or less of total employment. While there are roadblocks to women entering these fields, such as lack of access to role models, fair treatment and sexism, these "non-traditional jobs" often pay 20 to 30 percent more than traditionally undervalued female jobs. This along with passion for the work and new challenges are reasons why certain inspiring women have flocked to these non-traditional jobs.
