Women In Film: Hard Hatted Woman





http://www.hardhattedwoman.com
"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.

On the evening of August 27,2015 I was attacked by my ex boyfriend. I was feeling overwhelmed at his house because of some information he mentioned to me. It made me feel uncomfortable. I wanted to leave. He got upset that I wanted to leave. I told him he didn't care. He slapped me in the face with the remote control.I cleaned up in the bathroom & he came and got me. We laid down back to back to each other. I was upset with him about a text message a girl sent to him. There was verbal abuse for sure. He leaned over and punched me in th
