Sommelier as a career for women?

Also, do you think the field has special challenges for women?

I think there are both challenges and opportunities for women. Sometimes it's hard to get hired for traditionally male jobs. But tableside, it's an advantage. They see the sommelier doesn't look like your typical sommelier, and they feel relieved that perhaps this won't be the "typical" downer sommelier experience.
