This research aims to evaluate the reasons for the women of in chosen organizations and spheres to choose stereotypically feminine professions in the vast majority of cases even though those professions are lower in status and less paid. Thereby, statistical committee states that the least paid spheres of Uzbekistan are healthcare and education, and the biggest proportion of positions in those spheres are occupied by women (UzStat. uz). The investigation found out that females of the jobs with high percentage of female workforce tend to choose their professions due to the parents’ and society’s pressure, whereas women with “uncommon” occupations have selected their spheres in accordance with their personal interests. In addition 75% of women of the latter type of job admitted the existence of discrimination in the workplace.
