According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, only 19.9% of people in the utility industry in 2019 were women.
To the average person, utility work is associated with male-dominated fields like construction, demolition, or the trades. But recently, more women are realizing the benefits of working in these fields. According to Trading Industry magazine, the number of women in “blue-collar” trades has trended up.
