Employees in female-dominated jobs do appear to have less opportunity for advancement. For the purposes of this analysis, it was assumed that the employee with the highest letter grade in a job category represented the highest letter grade any employee in that job category could aspire to. In 59% of the female-dominated job categories, the highest letter-graded employee is an E or F; only 18% of the male-dominated job categories stall at D or E (Figure 1). In 64% of the maledominated categories, the highest graded employee is a G, H or I; less than 12% of the femaledominated job categories reach G, H or I.
