The 20 highest paying jobs for women
Posted in front pageNews

The gender wage gap is pervasive in many industries, especially those still dominated by men.

But there are some fields where women not only make up a high percentage of the workforce, but they earn competitive pay doing it.

PayScale recently looked at occupations with the highest median pay for women with five to eight years of experience. To highlight jobs in which women frequently work, only those where at least 40% of workers identified as female were included.

A number of well-paying healthcare occupations feature high concentrations of women. More than 90% of nurse practitioners and a little less than half of general physicians are women, Bremer tells Business Insider.
