If she'd been born one generation earlier, Judith Lucy's career options probably would have ranged all the way from housewife to hairdresser. Even her chosen career of stand-up comedy was a pretty blokey world when she entered it, and Australia still has one of the most segregated workforces in the world - e.g. plumbers will more than likely be men, while 90% of nurses are women. So to find out why, Judith swaps her mic for a bed pan and lets her nursing skills loose on a hospital ward, then catches up with two pioneering female pilots, including Deborah Lawrie, who had to take Ansett Airlines to court in 1979 for the right to fly a plane.
