Are We Stuck in 1980? I looked at that chart of women in construction, and something snapped in me. This is not 1980; it’s 2010. So I sent the link to my friends in the Maine Society of Women Engineers, the local high school guidance office, the carpentry teacher at the vocational school, the dean of engineering at the University of Maine and others. I put it on Facebook and LinkedIn. So, thank you for your interesting and informative chart, and I’ve spread it around for you. I don’t think I’m done being mad about it. Helen C.
