I like that painting too. It reminds us that not everyone follows the norm. I worked as a carpenter for 20 years. It was a very satisfying occupation. The only woman on a 50 man crew. Back when it was news worthy. This painting makes me thank the women that came before.

Lisa — Wow! That is an amazing story. When I moved to Madison in 1972, the jobs were listed in the newspaper by gender: jobs for men, jobs for women. And I remember the first women here being hired in positions that formerly were only men. That had to be a difficult situation, at least at first, as I am sure there was resistance. Congrats for your efforts.

The article here from MJS raises fascinating issues!
