Think about it! I bet there are less than 1% women plumbers. Not necessarily because they are kept out, but because most women would not want the job due to the ick factor.WOW - I am thrown by that statement,
So, not true

I know of only 1 female Master Plumber in our city and I don't think she is actually plumbing. She just holds a Master's card.
Hubby did a ton of commercial work prior to us going into business and he did not run across any females either.

I'm not conceding to anything. Just pointing out the reality in percentages.
Can you HONESTLY tell me that you would not want to be respected in this industry? I would want the respect I have earned in any industry. I love the business side and admire all tradesman (plumbing is a profession I know). For the record, I am respected in the industry on a local level. I have spoken publically numerous times regarding the industry and have been published twice in our local paper. However, I have no desire to be a plumber (I admit, the ick factor). I would have loved to have been a carpenter though.
Do you think because you are a women, you are not qualified? I am not qualified because I do not have the training. It has nothing to do with being a female. I truly believe women can be as good and some even better than their male counterparts. I am not a sexist. If my daughters wanted to become plumbers, I would encourage them all the way. It just wasn't my dream. As a female in this industry, I do fight for what I believe in and my place in it. I even had to fight to remain a member of Plumbing Zone because some thought Professional Plumbing site was only for plumbers - not necessarily business owners.
Let me tell you one thing and IF your husband is a plumber you will relate.
"Behind every good man, Stands a STRONGER women" My husband would agree wholeheartedly! We are partners in every sense of the word.
You know what I mean........Us men all come home and cry to our wifes. "Honey, what am I going to do"
I am just man enough to admit it.
Give yourself more credit and stand up in this industry and make a difference. Hell, I am I'm not sure how you came to the conclusion that I feel defeated in any way? I'm not a quitter and plan to stay in the plumbing field.
I KNOW I AM GOOD AT WHAT I DO!!!
