The workforce has changed tremendously over the years. These days, there are no such things as gender-specific roles in industries.

These days you find women who are plumbers, construction workers, and even mechanics - jobs that were traditionally done by men in the past.

One particular South African woman who is being thrust into the limelight for what she does is Major Mandisa Mfeka. She made history by becoming the first black woman combat fighter pilot in the country.

She was part of the Hawks formation at this weekend's presidential inauguration. It is reported that her love for all things aviation began at the tender age of five. 

While we applaud Mandisa for her achievement, Bongani and Mags wanted to hear from the woman of KZN who are in roles that are traditionally done by men. 

Are you a woman doing a job that was traditionally done by men? What do you do, and what made you decide to get into it?
