"HARD HATTED WOMAN is the first feature-length documentary to tell the story of women breaking down gender barriers in blue-collar construction trades. For decades, women have fought for equal access to these high-paying careers, but the industry remains 97% male-dominated. The film follows five women as they boldly pursue their own personal and economic empowerment through careers in the trades, taking the viewer into the grit and intensity of construction sites and creating powerful and intimate portraits of the women who choose this work. It reveals the challenges they face, their pride and passion for the work, and the enduring fight of the tradeswomen movement."
I think this is going to be an interesting film to watch as well as raise awareness and inspire others. Many women are builders, that are not afraid to get their hands dirty and put in the work while embracing their endurance, strength and trade.
