GLOSSARY ENTRY (DERIVED FROM QUESTION BELOW)
Spanish term or phrase:
se abren hueco
... are creating a space for themselves in occupations
Explanation: I suspect, possibly mistakenly of course, that the word, "a" precedes "las mujeres" in the source text.

Make their way... ( Women make their way...)
Explanation: Acá estamos hablando de HACERSE PASO. Hacerse paso ( hacerse hueco o encontrar un hueco) significa precisamente éso: poder, con esfuerzo tener acceso a lugares o puestos de trabajo que, antes, estaban reservados para otros.
MAKE ONE'S WAY es, en mi opinión , la traducción adecuada.
