It has been so much fun! Over 140 nominations and women between 16-72 years with so many different life stories. Like one woman who works as a set designer walks in and starts an account for over 100 000 SEK (14500 dollares) to buy tools and wood – the guy at the hardware store gives her a folder about how to learn to build stuff just because she is a woman. Or another who is alone with just another girl in a school with 400 boys and the teacher says that carpentering is not for women and call them sluts in front of a larger group. But also stories about women that love their job although it can sometimes be a bit tough being the only girl among the men and lots of men supporting more women in the construction industry.
I am so grateful and happy to be able to do this and it feels so good to see women (and the men) get together and salute this issue!
