How gender polarized is the Thai workplace?

Recommended Posts

I called 4 customer service centers in Thailand (all banks). I connected to 6 people total and each was a woman. I'd guess on the younger side mostly.

 

Does Thailand look like the US in the 1960s for workplace gender roles? Including in the elite professions (law, engineering, medicine)?

Go to a university, around 20% of students are male. I worked with PWA, 1 senior manager among about 20 was male. I went to a Bangkok skin clinic recently, 20% of doctors were male, and a male receptionist. Similar at the local private hospital, I see women dentists and doctors.

 

Aus uni scholarships, again about 20% male.

 

Saw photos of honour students outside a school, 12 female, one male.

 

With Chinese ancestry, the proportion is different. My Thai partner, in her 40s, saw a 100% Thai male doctor recently. She said it was the first time, all others have Chinese background.

 

This fascinates me because I have a statistics background, and because it is so different from Australia.

It's not about male and female it's about young and old. They like young not because they are eye candy but because they need pay them less.

In thailand all is like every where thw same. All about the money and you see mostly..... young people. They are less expensive....

 

The older people ..... are replaced by the yong onces.

 

That will end soon due the lack of new borns in Thailand. Then you will see all ageing and then the youg onces are expensive...  not because they have knowledge of expercience just because of the looks.

No segregation. The Thai men are busy asleep at home or drunk or shagging, or doing all simultaneously, while their wives or girlfriends, or both, work to earn a paycheck so their wonderful men can have their allowance on time and in full. It's a well-oiled system that gives every Thai a great sense of national pride.

 

I forgive the OP, he must have just arrived in country.
