Women in audiology

The majority of audiologists I have come into contact with are women. 
It does not surprise me in the least that a small sampling like you 
mentioned would be all female. My entering class in grad school was 8 
women out of 8 students. The next year was 4 out of 4. This next year 
there is a male, but from what I understand from talking to others, 
this is pretty standard (i.e. very few males). I have read and believe 
that female-dominated professions(SLP and audiology) are paid lower 
than male-dominated professions (e.g. engineering). Besides that, why 
is having a female-dominated profession cause for alarm?
