Women are overrepresented in industries that require high levels of social skills and empathy (like nursing, teaching and care work), where it would be difficult to replace a human worker with automation. In advanced economies, women also have on average higher levels of education and digital literacy, giving them a competitive advantage in a labour market continually transformed by digital innovation. This does not mean that automation will eliminate any form of gender gap in the labour market, but it does mean that women have less to fear than men from the advent of robots.
