We will never get very far by continuing to call trades, technology, science
and engineering "nontraditional occupations", when the desire for young
women is often towards peer sameness. They don't want to be nontraditional
, they want to be just like everyone else, except they want to do
interesting work and make good money. Calling it nontraditional, instead of
just describing the kinds of occupations we are talking about:trades,
technology, science and engineering, is a diservice to our young women.
