Tahnks to you All,
the proper solution is the one suggested by Maarten,

bys occupation: egen prop = mean(fem)

gen a variable which allows buildng the single sample proportion for
females. For men it is sufficient to gen the 1-prop by each
occupation.

Thanks also for the suggestions for organizing data efficiently.

Chiara
