Because things aren't changing

Because things aren't changing

I work with a company of female plumbers (Stopcocks Women Plumbers). The percentage of women in skilled trades is still only around 2%, no one even knows the actual figures because no one bothers counting. There has actually been a fall since the late 80's early 90's in these numbers. I can accept that most women don't want to be plumbers, plasterers and crane drivers, but there is so much more to this. The system actively prevents women from qualifying in skilled trades, yes, here in UK right now. Wouldn't strong female role models of actual strong capable women be great for everyone to see. Women with big tools, fixing things in the homes of the nation and treating customers with respect (don't get me started on that). How better to let girls and women know they can be in control and in control of their own destiny? No one is going to do it for us. I'm in!
