Top paying jobs for women.

If you want one of the highest-paying jobs for women, a job in healthcare may be the way to go.


The gender wage gap is pervasive in many industries, especially those still dominated by men. But there are some fields where women not only make up a high percentage of the workforce, but they earn competitive pay doing it. Business Insider looked at data from the US Census Bureau's 2016 American Community Survey to find occupations with the highest median pay for women who work full-time, year-round and are over the age of 16. To highlight jobs in which women frequently work, only those where at least 40% of workers identified as female were included. Check out the full list of jobs where women earn the most: 20.
