Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

And of course raise salaries for 'female' jobs in general. Thus they might get more interesting for men too. This worked here with nurses, once the salaries improved, men were moving into this area too.

I wasn't speaking of salaries but employment numbers - salaries are quite high for supermodels, and most supermodels are women just like a majority of designers seem to be men.
And speaking of numbers, I honestly doubt that the reason men models are not numerous is low salaries. The same holds for nurses or teachers, btw.
Which makes the whole idea of "creating incentives" useless, for based on false premises. Like I said on another thread, the social-equality methodology is simplistic and even mistaken, not based on serious scientifical studies, and going against individual freedoms and incentive, in the end. (I'm a fierce opposer of anything ultraliberal/neocon btw)
