native speakers of Spanish, I need your help!

For my Spanish Morphology and Syntax class, I need to do a quick (8 question) survey for native Spanish speakers. My project deals with gender in professions historically dominated by one gender. If you could respond to the questions with what word you'd use, and say what country you're from, I'd appreciate it! The survey is under the cut.
EDIT: Just for a little more explanation, no answer is wrong if it's what you'd really say. Also, I'm going to screen the answers (I meant to in the first place XD) so your answers will be confidential. :) I'll unscreen them once I've got enough responses!

1. Si Bill Clinton es el político ¿como se llama una mujer en la misma profesión?
2. Si Juán es el mecánico, ¿como se llama una mujer en la misma profesión?
3. Si un hombre es el químico, y la profesión es la química, ¿como se llama una mujer en la profesión de química?
4. Néstor Kirchner era el presidente de Argentina. ¿Como se llama Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, que fue elegida por los argentinos?
5. Rosa es la enfermera, ¿y un hombre en la misma profesión es que?
6. Una mujer es la secretaria. ¿Un hombre en la misma profesión es que?
7. Una mujer es la azafata, ¿y un hombre en la misma profesión es que?
8. La madre es la ama de casa, ¿y el padre en la misma profesión es que?
