Good to see this article. My wife is a union construction Electrician and has made a good living for herself. Good to see they are promoting working safely, using safety glasses. FYI, some pictures show the girls not wearing gloves when it would be safer to use gloves.

Love this! As a retired middle school teacher and an active Habitat for Humanity Women Build volunteer; I applaud all those involved... We need to bring back shop classes in our schools and encourage girls to try their hand at new skills... The sky is the limit!
