So much for equality: Men are less likely to become elementary teachers or nurses because of gender bias, report finds

Article here. Excerpt:

'Gender discrimination is preventing men from becoming elementary teachers and nurses, experts warn.

They say that while women's struggle to get into science, tech and engineering roles has been well-publicized, professional discrimination against males has not.

Biases against men in early education and healthcare are thought to be linked to a perception that women are more caring and less dangerous.

Two new studies published by the American Psychological Association today sought to gauge the impact of those stereotypes.'
