FYR: NY Times article: “Building Towers, Razing Sexism”

For your reference… I always try to post articles about ladies braving and demolishing sexism in the workplace, and I especially love it when it comes from overly male-dominated industries. This op-ed piece appeared in the New York Times “Preoccupations” column a few days ago, featuring a woman who has made a name for herself in the construction industry. Hard hats off to you, Roxanne!

(If the link doesn’t work or asks you to log in, let me know, and I’ll post the article in full on one of my pages. I subscribe to the Times, so sometimes I forget that the news isn’t free anymore!)
