New U.S. census data shows that in 2010 women held 33.4% of legal jobs (lawyers, judges, magistrates and other judicial workers), up from 29.2% in 2000. Women also make up 32.4% of physicians and surgeons, up from 26.8%. These gains represent huge progress: in 1970 women were less than 10% of doctors and less than 5% of lawyers. However, a wage gap remains. In 2007 the average salary for female lawyers was $90,000 while the average for men was $122,000.
