(CNN) -- Women have made huge strides in fields traditionally dominated by men. Today you're more likely to have a woman do your taxes, or serve you a drink.
We know there’s still a ways to go for gender equality in the workplace, but in some industries women are dominating where men used to rule.
For more than a century, mostly men studied pharmacy. The Bureau of Labor Statistics says only 27 percent of pharmacists were women in 1983.
But the gender breakdown has shifted over the past 30 years. Last year, women made up more than half of practicing pharmacists around the world.
More and more women are also joining the business world. The U.S. had its first certified female accountant in 1899. Today, 60 percent of accountants are women.
Also on the list are physicians assistants. There’s a recent Yale study that shows becoming a PA may be even more lucrative for women than becoming a doctor. That’s because of the cost of education and the pay gap between male and female doctors.
Bar tending and photography are also up and coming. While the gender balance is 60/40 favoring women for barkeepers, it’s even more split for photographers.
Bottom line: Even though women may be gaining ground in certain fields, their paychecks and their titles don’t always compete with those of their male counterparts, so there’s still a lot of work to be done.
