Word of the day: pink-collar

The word of the day is pink-collar:
  1. of or pertaining to a type of employment traditionally held by women, especially relatively low-paying work: secretaries, phone operators, and other pink-collar workers.

"Their wives were nurses, pink-collar workers, retail clerks, service workers, or blue-collar workers themselves."
