Nontraditional employment is a socioeconomic term used to define a specific profession or industry in which less than 25 percent of those employed within it are women. This situation can arise for a number of reasons. The position or industry in question simply might not hold as much personal interest for as many women as it does for men. However, many people argue that there are also regrettable situations in which those responsible for choosing new employees have either a bias against women or have an unwritten directive to give preference to male applicants. This ambiguity has prompted much legislation and investigation in the modern economy.
