Why so few female pumbers?

The article here about a female plumber made me think.

Apparently a female plumber is so unusual it is newsworthy. Can you imagine a newspaper publishing a story saying that a man had signed up for a plumbing course? Of course not. Everyone expects plumbers to be male. Why?

Come on ladies. Let’s hear your views. Why are there so few female plumbers that this is a news story?
