Exercise a traditionally female profession raises the question of the place of men in this profession. Today, diversity does not achieve numerical parity for many businesses and it speaks more professional digital diversity female hegemony : as for nursing assistants (10 % men ) or in the early childhood field (3 to 4% of early childhood educators, child minders 1% ) and male hegemony as digital for lorry drivers (1 % women). Gender stereotypes still effectively develop a typology of trades. In France, in 2014, 79.7 % are university professors and lecturers 58.1 % , 42.2% in secondary education (Repères et Satistiques 2014), and 17.8 % in primary school. In addition, in a " business women " minority men experience favored route (William , 1992). So that the male presence in so-called business "female" led to question gender relations. Therefore, our study is to analyze by semi -structured interviews access conditions for the profession of men who made that choice. We would ask that represents access to a professorship for men in terms of gender and masculinities assignments (Dulong Guionnet and Neveu , 2012, Connell, 2005).
