More women have high status jobsDiscrimination in the workplace between the sexes could become a thing of the past after it has was revealed that there are now more women working in high status jobs than men.

According to the BBC, a University of Cambridge study has revealed that there has been a "quiet revolution" in UK workplaces, as females have begun to pull ahead of their male counterparts in the fields of law and medicine.

However, it was also noted that men still receive a higher income than women on average.

Dr Robert Blackburn, author of the report, said: "Formerly women were more likely than men to be in manual occupations, but as manual work has declined, it is predominantly women who have moved into non-manual jobs."

And further changes may be afoot for women in the workplace, after the Trade Union Congress suggested that ladies should not be made to wear high heels in their jobs.
