I'm sure the republicans would consider this as "unnatural" or an affront to some religious precept. What! Women working in the trades? OMG this goes against the natural laws of the universe! Thanks Carrie

Noted. Yes, the future generations need to have so many female role models in various jobs. I don't want my granddaughters thinking Miley Cyrus and other teen pop stars are the only road to success.
