Its clear that biases are at work, but how exactly are they operating? For one thing, conceptions of expertise are inseparable from gender. As Judy Wajcman, a sociology professor at the London School of Economics, has argued , The classification of womens jobs as unskilled and mens jobs as skilled frequently bears little relation to the actual amount of training or ability required for them. Skill definitions are saturated with gender bias. Gender stereotypes pervade definitions of competence and status, contrasting work that requires brain or brawn; mathematical or verbal ability; individualism or cooperation. When an occupation undergoes a shift in gender composition, the description of the job often morphs to better align with the gender of the incoming hiressuch as when programming went from being understood as clerical work suitable for women to a job that demands advanced mathematical facility. When women replaced men as typists, it went from a job that was seen as requiring physical stamina to one that needed a womans dexterity. This isnt to suggest that gender segregation in the labor market explains unequal pay on its own. Even when women work in male-dominated fields, a pay gap persists. The Harvard economist Claudia Goldin found that the majority of the pay gap between men and women results from differences within occupations, not between them.

College is often a time when this synthesis of discerning faith and a lifers work begins in earnest. Christian theologians see the Fall of man profoundly affecting human work. A person can pick, choose and switch profession freely depending on his/her preferences, strengths or circumstances. A vocation which is by many persons called exterior thus comes to be added to the interior vocation; and this exterior vocation is defined as the admission of a candidate in due form by competent authority. “a calling,” from vocatus “called,” pp. of vocare “to call” see voice. The universal call to holiness is an ongoing conversion experience.
Both a model and an inspiration in his own right, the Estes Park native recently broke out of his small town and into the world of fashion and intrigue with his recent appearance in an issue of W Magazine. Young models from small towns like Estes Park launch their career all the time, but McArthur’s modeling specialty is different from almost all other professional models: he’s transgender. “I started modeling when I was really young … and I’ve been doing it ever since,” McArthur said. “Then last year I decided that I wasn’t happy at all anymore because I was figuring out myself and who I was. interview attireI wasn’t happy presenting myself as a female.” Unlike most teenagers who get a part-time job at a local restaurant or store, Estes Park’s Casil McArthur modeling jobs require him to fly to photo shoots in New York City and other locations. (Photo by Rachel Ryan / Estes Park Trail-Gazette) McArthur’s transition began in December 2015 which Marcia Rothschild, a family friend, described as “empowering.” “Before [the transition] Casil pretty much spoke monosyllabically,” Rothschild said. “Very little answers.
