Female Private Investigator - 3 Reasons Why Woman Choose Them

Australian private investigators are predominantly men. While there is little difference in the quality of service provided by a male or female private investigator, women are choosing to work alongside their gender counterparts.

1. A female private investigator is more able to understand the feelings of another woman

Women who suspect their partner or husband is cheating can feel stressed and uncertain about the future of their relationship. They may also struggle with shame, guilt, or a lack of self-esteem. Women can wrongly feel guilty about the infidelity they suspect.

This highly emotional situation makes it easier to hire a female private investigator for long-term girlfriends or wives who are looking for answers to their partner’s behavior. Women feel less self-conscious about speaking up to another woman.

“Women might feel uncomfortable with the alpha-male culture in the private investigation sector. They simply want to work alongside a female PI for an easier approach.”

Women may also feel less embarrassed if they are confronted by a male private investigator. They may feel that a female private investigator is more sympathetic and understands their feelings.

Anna Jeffs, a female private investigator from Auckland, was shocked to discover that her boyfriend had been engaged to another woman in 2013. Surprisingly, he was also seeing 6 other women at the time (not including Anna). Anna is a woman who knows what these women are going through.

2. The advantage of blending in is for a female PI

Many people assume that private investigators are male because there is a lot of male detectives in literature, film, and popular culture. It’s much easier to use this expectation to surveil people of interest by hiring a female private investigator.

A female private investigator can be used to monitor another female without having to “stick out” in certain places like female toilets, changing rooms, and women’s fashion shops. This also prevents the female of interest from being scared if she sees that a man is following her.

3. Women are more likely to support each other in business than men.

Media coverage is constant on the issues of gender equality, and specifically, the gender pays gap. Private investigations in Australia are just one example of many industries that remain male-dominated.

Private investigations are often conducted by female clients who choose to work alongside another female client. This is because it empowers and supports another woman in business. Not only will they be able to meet their immediate needs as a private investigator, but also help solve the larger problem of male dominance in the industry and equal pay.

Some women might be uncomfortable with the alpha-male culture in the private investigation industry and want to work alongside a female PI to get a more gentle approach and similar working style.
