Ok, so help us understand what CNN is trying to do here. Are they saying it’s shocking that a woman could actually be a pilot when so few are OR are they shaming women for not being pilots more often? It’s not like there’s some imposed barrier keeping women from being whatever they really want to be in this country, it’s just a matter of choosing …

Of the 159,825 pilots flying for airlines last year, only 6,994 were women, about 4.37%. Both the number and percentage have been on a slow ascent since 2008.
They also called it, ‘A Man’s World.’
There are plenty of other professions where the number of women are limited.
Now do plumbers.
C’mon CNN, seriously.
HA HA HA HA HA HA HA.
Oh no you di’int.
If any of my 3 daughters wanted to become a pilot, she could try. If all of my 3 daughters don't want to become pilots, so what?

Patriarchy!!! Russia! White privilege!
That’s how this works, right?
What percentage of men are nurses?

Until all professions are 50/50, men are pigs.
This is CNN.

For the 1234th time, men and women value different things in the work place. Many women care about family above all else and being away from home 4 nights a week simply does not appeal to them. Stop making this hard. It isn't.

They desperately need this to be a story, otherwise, all they have to write about is how much they hate Trump.
I’m looking, but I don’t see that you actually have a point. Do you have one?

That would be no.
