5 jobs you thought were masculine, where women are very successful!
From the working point of view, women are divided into two categories: on the one hand there are those who have always dreamed of undertaking a profession commonly associated with the female universe; on the other we have women whose dream is, for example, to become the first astronaut to set foot on Mars, or a very brave firefighter who saves dozens and dozens of lives. All male-dominated jobs, in which, until recently, there were no female mentors ... until they arrived, they became their own mentors. We are talking about 5 very normal women, who every day carry on a profession in the collective imagination seen as male, and they do it with great success!
1. The Family Banker - Giorgia Bruschi: a fixed point in the choices of families
After studying Law, Giorgia Bruschi approaches the Mediolanum world with the dream of achieving her independence and fulfilling herself professionally. In the company, he immediately found an extremely attentive environment for the training of his collaborators, thanks also to the corporate university, Mediolanum Corporate University where he was able to receive the preparatory and necessary preparation for the exam and therefore to enroll in the Register of Financial Advisors . Of course, approaching the purely male profession, he recalls, was not easy, especially at the beginning: clients did not expect a female financial consultant. With enthusiasm, tenacity and willpower, however, things changed. Giorgia has, in fact, managed to obtain an ever-growing trust from her customers, also thanks to that femininity that initially had been an obstacle to her, but which now allows her to reach a deep empathy with the families she cares for, thus managing to immediately grasp their needs and advise them on the most suitable choices for the future. Today Giorgia is also one of the faces of the new Banca Mediolanum commercial.

2. The barber - Elisabetta Giuliano: a woman with a razor blade
Have you ever seen a female barber? No? Don't worry, you are not the only ones! Even the first clients of Elisabetta Giuliano, when they entered their trusted barber for routine treatment, were surprised (and, often, very skeptical) to find themselves in front of a woman with a razor in her hand. The same happened to the numerous training courses she took part in, even abroad, during her career. But the young girl, fascinated by the rituality of the gestures linked to shaving and by the search for a "tailor-made" aesthetic for each man, she did not give up. She pursued her dream with perseverance and dedication, achieving not only an admirable professional familiarity, but also the trust of clients: "While I work, for my clients I do not disappear as a woman, I am visible, but it becomes clear that my work is first of all take care of the people, the customers sit for it, and they get up with this: the care. " Having overcome the difficulties related to a context not very accustomed to the presence of women, therefore, he opened his own workshop, Piano B, in the province of Bari, entering the very restricted (hopefully for a little while) circle of woman barbers in our country.

How do you go from studying law to being the only woman to get a Michelin star in 2010? Ask Cristina Bowman, originally from Puglia, Roman and American by adoption (primarily working).

After working for some of the most renowned restaurants, he returns to Italy and lands at the Glass Hostaria, a newly opened restaurant in Trastevere. The restaurant, initially, did not obtain the hoped-for success, despite Cristina's constant commitment and imagination, but she did not give up and continued strenuously to believe in the project. And you know, hard work always pays off: with the passage of time the customers increase, the notoriety also, until reaching the highest recognition in the culinary field. In fact, the chef was awarded a Michelin Star in 2010, and she is the only starred woman of the year. But it certainly does not end here: the opening of new premises and further prizes follow.
