Blue Collar Women
Trailblazing Women Take On Men-Only Jobs
by Trudi Ferguson and Madeline Sharples
Women who have broken with accepted societal roles and now enjoy careers in a formerly-male world share their experiences of accomplishment and frustration. They have made inroads with salaries and hiring policies, but issues like sexual harassment and lack of acceptance from male colleagues still face these women. Ferguson offers blue-collar women and women thinking of pursuing nontraditional careers vital information about many issues, including self-esteem, practical approaches to in-the-job differences and seeking support.
