I have a distinct memory of being 18 years old and working one of my first concerts ever as a hand, and hearing some d-bag say “women can’t climb truss — their boobs get in the way!” That woman gave that scumbag the hardest smack I have ever heard someone get, and rightfully so.
@EmLah from the great Twitterverse sent me a link a few days ago, and I think it is awesome. Women face unique challenges in the lighting industry and now have a place to gather online to share their experiences. Women In Lighting is a website that offers women a forum to highlight achievements by women in the lighting fields. The site also offers job listings, resources, and industry news.
Check out the Women In Lighting website – be supportive!
