Foreigners to the Culture: Women in Trades and Technologies (1991)

Women's Education des femmes, Fall 1991- Vol. 9, No. 2

In 1983, women made up about three percent of the apprenticeable trades and slightly more of the technologies. This number had barely increased from ten years before. It seems, that although there is an increase in the number of women entering the trades and technologies, many are not staying. The reason is not that they don't like the work, but because they can't stand the environment. This article discusses the differences between men and women that come clear when they meet in the context of a traditional male bastion of behaviour and language.
