Jobs that were mostly female in 2000 and have become more male are lower-status jobs. The share of women who work in stores selling products and answering customer questions fell 10 percent; the share for crossing guards and counter clerks each fell 7 percent, and for textile workers it fell 5 percent.
Men are much less likely to have moved into the higher-status professions that are majority women, like nursing and high school teaching (they became more male by about 2 percent between 2000 and 2014.) The share of women grew slightly in two female-dominated professions, social worker and librarian.
