I’ve been going through my collection of Tradeswomen magazines (published by volunteer tradeswomen 1981-1999) and thinking about how much of what we wrote still has relevance today. We started writing and talking about sexual harassment before the term was even in the mainstream lexicon and before we had any legal backing. We were truly foremothers in this fight, and our persistence has paid off in improved industry standards and better working conditions for women in the construction trades. Here’s a story we published in 1983.

Thanks, Molly. Another essay that was potentially groundbreaking at the time, and very relevant to today.
Very thought-provoking as usual, Molly. THANKS for the historical perspective, and the reflections on inter-personal relationships. Being honest in expressing one’s hopes and fears can change everything.
