Women today have stepped into fields, such as the military, that were once considered as “male bastions”. This paper seeks to study the role that women play in various fields, their influence on the work and on their counterparts and their own experiences in the workplace. The topic is subjective in nature since not all women might feel “discriminated”; they may merely feel “exempted.” Hence, I propose to start by exploring the history when women first stepped out of their traditional roles. I seek to critically analyze by seriously questioning the pros and cons of the roles played by women in different fields by studying data from various sources.
