The 25 highest paying jobs for women


By Michael B. Sauter24/7 Wall St.

The most recent available data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics shows that women in full-time positions still make just over 80 cents on the dollar compared to men working full-time.

One of the reasons often cited for the gender wage gap is known as the "glass ceiling," the invisible barrier in the workplace that prevents women from having access to the very high-end positions. Despite claims to the contrary, the glass ceiling in the United States continues to be a reality for millions of women in the workplace.

The result is that while some women are employed in the highest-paid occupations in the country, they tend to have much lower representation and are also paid less for the same work. 24/7 Wall St. reviewed the 25 occupations with the highest average full-time salaries for women in the United States. In all cases, women earned lower annual average salaries than men, and in 18 of the 25 occupations men accounted for a larger share of total employment than women.

The occupations on this list, all of which have average annual salaries for women in excess of $60,000, are evidence of the progress that has been made for gender equality in the workplace. Employment and high pay among women in these high-paying occupations has increased, in some cases dramatically.

Ariane Hegewisch, program director of employment and earnings at The Institute for Women’s Policy Research, a nonpartisan policy research group, told 24/7 Wall St. in an interview that these high-paying jobs are a positive sign, even if representation and pay gap is still a work in progress. "The level of pay is important -- to have more women in higher-paying positions, even if the men make even more -- is progress.
