Welsh Womens' Work

Too many girls in Wales are still being steered into traditional women's work, claims an equal opportunities report.

I'm still interested in my theory that the "steering" is not so much being told "Plumbing is a nasty men's job that might break your fingernails" as not being told "Plumbing is a mucky job, but it brings in good money" - either only boys are being told this, or no-one's being told it but boys are more interested in finding out for themselves, or boys and girls are equally aware of it, but boys consider it more important.
