9 careers where women are paid more than men

It's common knowledge women typically make less in the workforce -- around 82 cents for every dollar earned by male counterparts, according to Labor Department statistics. Part of the problem, Glassdoor found, is that nine out of the 10 highest-paying college majors (such as engineering, physics, and computer science) are dominated by men, while women are more prominent in six of the 10 lowest-paying majors (including in liberal arts and social sciences). But even men and women with the same majors often split into different job titles within industries where men often wind up in positions that pay more.
There's good news: Women often make higher wages than men if they are in male-dominated fields, especially when joining unions within those fields. As the gender pay gap persists, these jobs are few and far between and subject to a wide variety of variables, but they are out there. Click through to see them all.
