Why Do We Have Only Female Secretaries?

I was just wondering why is it that there are majority of women secetaries and I doubt if I have ever seen a male secretary. What's up with that? Views please!

There are plenty of male secretaries, but the media has created the impression that only women are secretaries. It is similar to how women are always portrayed to be nurses, when there are also large number of male nurses.

It suits women better. Sorry. Are you saying leadership suits men more than women?

Are you saying that men can't have good telephone manners? Or that women can't lead?

There are several male secretaries and they do their work very well if not better than the female secretaries.

It's not that easy for me to have a male secretary because there are many things they may not do for you. Like sending on errand and making TEA.

I am a Secretary and I had been doing it for over 15 years now. The Boss expects so much from you, but they believe the profession belongs to the drop-outs. I am one of those you called Top-Flight Secretaries, that is Secretary with a class. And I do have and know about 10 more of my mates who are also male secretaries. If you ask me if I have regrets? Nope.

Women are brought up to support the ideas of the men in their lives instead of having their own ideas (that way when things go wrong they are never at fault, or else why is miriam Abacha still walking free today?)

Women who are brought up that way would naturally fit into the role of Secretary or Personal Assistant. Besides, if you are a man and you are to hire a secretary, won't you prefer to hire an attractive lady?
