Men & Women and Tools Bridging the Divide


Men & Women and Tools Bridging the Divide by Marcia Braundy

Why does this disparity continue to exist? In Men & Women and Tools, Marcia Braundy - herself a tradesperson - explores this issue by focusing on male resistance to the inclusion of women in technical work.
