Hats Off to the Ladies of Construction
Today is Women’s Equality Day, created in 1971 to mark the passing of the 19th constitutional amendment.
Passed in 1920, the U.S. constitution was finally amended to give women the right to vote–a change that suffragettes had been fighting for since 1848! (Side note, compared to that pace, I’m never nagging my husband about taking out the recycling again. Sure, it’s been two days, but it hasn’t been 72 years, so obviously, things could be worse.)
To all of my fellow ladies of construction, hats off to you! We may not appear in many stock photos, but we certainly do our part to keep the wheels of commerce turning!
