Women in Construction: Still Breaking Ground

National Women's Law Center; 2014

"The share of women in the construction industry has remained shockingly low - under 3 percent - for decades, due in large part to the discrimination that blocks women from entering and staying in the field. Sexual harassment and hostility, lack of mentors, and stereotyped assumptions about women's capabilities all contribute to the problem. Unequal access to construction jobs in turn negatively affects women's income, as traditionally male fields pay higher wages and have a lower wage gap than those dominated by women. More must be done to reverse this trend in construction, and the growth of women's participation in similar nontraditional fields shows that it is possible."
